Bajrangi Bhaijaan's director Kabir Khan has already gained the fame of an established filmmaker in Bollywood. The director has set his goals clear about his forthcoming projects that he may deliver in order to entertain us.
After the release of his much awaited Indo-China war film 'Tubelight' Kabir is all set to hit the internet as well.
His next project would be a web series which would chronicle the story of Subhash Chandra Bose's Indian National Army.
Tentatively titled "The Forgotten Army", which was also the name of a documentary Kabir made in 1996, the international mini-series for Amazon Prime Video will be set during World War II.
Kabir in a report addressed about his desire to make this feature come true and to make his audience know about the freedom fighter. He says, "Ever since I did that documentary, there was so much I experienced and saw, which was much more than what went into the documentary. I always wanted to make a big feature about this subject. This is the story which made me want to be a filmmaker. This is the one story I have to tell. After every film, I used to bring out the idea of forgotten army, keep writing the screenplay. It's finally happening."
The web series is supposed to have eight episodes which shall go on the floor after the release of 'Tubelight'.
As the trend of follows, after actress Nimrat Kaur, Kabir as well wants to try his hands on web series. When asked about it, he says, "The medium allows you to do much more than perhaps the mainstream Hindi films, where unfortunately the conditions we are in right now, we are constantly checking ourselves. We have certain characters who would be sitting on our films before we release."
Based on true events, "The Forgotten Army" is about people who fought a heroic war for the independence of India as part of the Indian National Army.
Kabir also told the reporters he is looking to have international cast for the war-epic series.
The shoot shall start from October this year.
