Anubhav Sinha, Ketan Mehta team up for a biopicMay 19, 2022 KRR
Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, whose 'Anek' is about to release shortly, has teamed up with filmmaker Ketan Mehta to produce 'Freedom Radio', a biopic based on the life of freedom fighter Usha Mehta.
The film will be helmed by Ketan, while Anubhav will be producing it under his production banner, Benaras Mediaworks.
Usha is remembered for organising the "Secret Congress Radio", an underground radio station, during the Quit India Movement of 1942. She was later conferred with the Padma Vibhushan, the nation's second highest civilian award.
Mehta has earlier made films like 'Sardar', 'Mangal Pandey - the Rising', and 'Manjhi- The Mountain Man'. According to him, set in the pre-independence era, the film's narrative captures a forgotten but crucial chapter in the Indian freedom struggle, the 'Quit India movement'.
