The film is not without its share of controversies as the legendary freedom fighter's grand-nephew, Chandra Kumar Bose had said it was a "criminal offence" to term "Gumnami Baba" as Netaji in disguise without any documentary or photographic evidence.
Gumnaami Baba is slated for release during Durga Puja in October.
