The role which I have played is that of the revolutionary leader Chandrashekhar Azad who lived for the country and died for the country. It was for the first time that a film which depicts a true revolutionary leader like Chandrashekhar Azad was shown to the world audience in Cannes Film Festival and also the film's producer Kamini Dube was the only Lady producer from the whole of Asia whose film RASHTRAPUTRA was screened in the Cannes Film Festival which is a proud moment for India and also for the film fraternity. Also the film RASHTRAPUTRA shows that Chandrashekhar Azad is a timeless cinematic creation. Azad was, he is and he will be the relevant hero of all times. Time changes but the problems remain the same in different looks. What would Azad do, how he would react if he was alive today ? He would be the same motivational force for today's youth as he was in his life time. RASHTRAPUTRA can be described as a great motivational movies with high voltage drama and entertainment values for the youth as well as the enlightened audience of 21st Century.
