Rajya Sabha Television’s Raag Desh has become the first Bollywood film to be premiered at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Tigmanshu Dhulia’s directorial Raag Desh salutes the heroes of the Indian National Army (INA).

“It was only befitting that the first screening of the film, produced by Rajya Sabha TV, be held for the President of India. We were fortunate and grateful that the President granted our wish,” Producer Gurdeep Singh Sappal said in a statement to media.

The film features Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor and Mohit Marwah who play the lead role as Shah Nawaz Khan, Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon, and Prem Sahgal.

Meanwhile the Censor Board has cleared the film for theatrical release.

Raag Desh is slated to be released on July 28.
