Few months ago, ALTBalaji announced its most ambitious show BOSE-Dead/Alive last week, based on India’s biggest cover up- the mysterious life of Subhash Chandra Bose, starring Rajkummar Rao.
Netaji’s fight for Indian independence took him to various countries. To bring that aspect of his personality on screen, it was crucial to show him travel the world making alliances against British Empire. The most challenging part of the entire shoot journey was to find locations which resembled the 1930-40’s era. The team hunted locations in even in the remotest areas to find identical locations; identical to the times when Netaji was alive. Shooting in Europe was comparatively easier as the architecture and roads looked the same as they did years ago, but the team went an extra mile to source vintage trains and buses from the mid twentieth century.
