Mohit Marwah certainly looks up to his uncle and actor Anil Kapoor for inspiration!To prepare for his role of an army officer Prem Kumar Sahgal, similar to the one played by his mama in the movie Pukar (2000), the young actor saw the patriotic film almost several times.
Mohit says, “Like most people, I’m too a huge fan of Anil Kapoor and the films that he has been a part of, especially Pukar being one of my most favourite films. When I signed Raag Desh-Birth of a nation, I got very excited and thought of watching Pukar again since he has pulled off the army officer role in the movie with great élan. In fact I know most of the dialogues from Pukar as well.”
The actor will bring to life the story of Colonel Prem Sahgal, an INA officer led by Subhash Chandra Bose in Raag Desh- Birth of a nation based on the INA trials following the World War 2.
Raag Desh revolves around Colonel Sehgal, Colonel Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon and Major General Shah Nawaz Khan, officers in the British Indian army taken as prisoners of war in Malaya, Singapore and Burma respectively, and court martialled in Delhi.
