The actor went on a strict diet to play this legendary character as one of the producers Anand Pandit told E Times, “When he came to my office with Sandeep Singh, he was 86 kg. He was so involved in the character and to date that to essay it on screen. He said that he won’t leave any stone unturned. He had only 1 khajoor and 1 glass of milk for 4 months until the shooting got over.”

The producer revealed that earlier Mahesh Manjrekar was on board to direct the film but he had to step down due to date issues. “I suggested to Randeep that why doesn’t he do it himself because he is so much into the Veer Savarkar character from the word ‘Go’. Randeep has done a wonderful job. After the release of this film, I think a lot more people will know a lot more about Veer Savarkar,” said Pandit.
