On January 30, 2024, Randeep Hooda took to social media to announce the official release date for Swatantrya Veer Savarkar. He captioned the post with “Two heroes of Indian Independence Struggle; One celebrated and One removed from History. On #MartyrsDay 2024 – HISTORY WILL BE REWRITTEN. #SwatantryaVeerSavarkar IN CINEMAS ON 22nd March, 2024.”
The video clip starts with a sketch that resembles Mahatma Gandhi, but when completed, it transforms into a sketch of freedom fighter Veer Savarkar. The background music is a lively Marathi number, with a voiceover saying, “Mujhe Gandhi se nahi, ahinsa se nafrat hai (I don’t hate Gandhi, I hate non-violence).”
In 2022, the makers unveiled the first look of Randeep Hooda as Veer Savarkar. The actor shared the poster on social media with the caption, “This is a salute to one of the tallest unsung heroes of India’s struggle for freedom and self-actualisation. I hope I can live up to the challenge of filling such big shoes of a true revolutionary and tell his real story which had been brushed under the carpet for so long. Wishing you all a very Happy #VeerSavarkarJayanti!”
