Nathuram Godse

On Gandhi Jayanti, the team of Sandeep Singh, Raaj Shaandilyaa, and Mahesh Manjrekar have announced Godse, a film on Hindu extremist and Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse. 

Godse will be produced by Sandeep Singh’s Legend Global Studio along with Raaj Shaandilyaa’s ThinkInk Picturez. Mahesh Manjrekar will be directing the project. 

Talking about the film, Mahesh, who is also making a biopic of Veer Savarkar, stated, “The story of Nathuram Godse has always been close to my heart. It takes a lot of courage to back a film of this nature. I always believe in hard-hitting subjects and uncompromised storytelling and this one fits the bill. People do not know much about Godse other than he’s the man who fired at Gandhi. While telling his story, we neither want to patronize nor want to speak against anyone. We’ll leave it to the audience on who is right or wrong.”

The makers have also released a teaser poster reading, "Janamdin ki hardik shubhkaamnaaye ‘Bapu’ … Aapka, Nathuram Godse," (Birthday greetings 'Bapu' ... Yours, Nathuram Godse." 

Godse is co-produced by Vimal Lahoti, Jay Pandya, and Abhay Verma. The film is presently being scripted. It is expected to go on floors in the second half of 2022.
