Hooda added that he lost weight to look like Savarkar. “When this movie, came to me I realized that I don’t look like him and thus I lost weight for this film.”

I also realised there are so many things about him that are neither taught to us in schools nor spoken in public. The moment his name is taken, people start making controversies. I was very angry and decided to this film. So many of my well-wishers told me that I am a good artist and if I do this film, I will be linked to a particular political party and political ideology…but then I did this film.”
