On the work front, Srijit Mukherji is all set to release his controversial directorial ‘Gumnaami’. The film is based on Gumnaami baba who was assumed to be the legendary freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Baba led the life as Hindu saint in Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh in the 1970s or 80s. Netaji Bose died in a plane crash in 1945 which has been doubted by many.
The teaser was released on August 15. The teaser shows a glimpse of Mahatma Gandhi sent a telegram to Bose's family requesting them to stop Bose's funeral ceremony and instigating that maybe Bose is alive. The voiceover further explains that there are theories that Bose did return to India but started living as a monk.
