Mo­hit shows his pa­tri­otic streak

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

He has proved his act­ing prow­ess with his first film. And now, ac­tor Mo­hit Marwah is all set to por­tray a real-life char­ac­ter on reel in his sec­ond film,

Raagdesh.

The film is based on the his­toric Red Fort tri­als of of­fi­cers of the Indian Na­tional Army (INA), which was formed by Sub­has Chan­dra Bose to free In­dia from Bri­tish rule. Mo­hit will be seen as Colonel Prem Se­h­gal, one of the mem­bers of the INA.

Speak­ing about why he chose this role, the 32-year-old ac­tor says, “I’ve al­ways had a strong pa­tri­otic streak in me. The pa­tri­o­tism of our sol­diers, who per­form self­less ser­vice for our coun­try with great ded­i­ca­tion, never ceases to amaze me.” Be­sides the chance to por­tray the role of an army man, it was also the sto­ry­line that in­trigued Mo­hit. “Raagdesh has an in­spir­ing sto­ry­line based on a true in­ci­dent which hap­pened pre-In­de­pen­dence, and this is a story that needs to be told,” he adds. The film also stars ac­tors Ku­nal Kapoor as Ma­jor Shah Nawaz Khan and Amit Sadh as Col. Gur­baksh Singh Dhillon.

Di­rected by Na­tional Award-win­ning filmmaker Tig­man­shu Dhu­lia and pro­duced by Gur­deep Singh Sap­pal, Raagdesh re­leases to­day.
