ALTBalaji’s biggest show of the year titled Bose: Dead/ Alive will be soon streaming on the ALTBalaji app and website. Prior to this, Hansal Mehta, Rajkummar Rao, Ekta Kapoor, Patralekha and others came to Kolkata for the promotion of this web series.

The series will not only unfold the truth that lies behind the mystery regarding the death of Netaji but also shows how he became what he all know him as.


Rajkummar Rao will be seen in the role of Netaji in the web-series. “I did shave off half of my head and gained 12 kilogram weight just to look the part. The sweets of Bengal helped me a lot in gaining the weight. They are delicious. This is the physical part. For the mental part, I went to Netaji Bhawan and looked at his belongings and tried to imagine myself in his shoes. This has been a challenging as well as an ambitious character for me” said the actor.


Ekta Kapoor when asked why she chose this digital medium for this web-series, she said “This is not only for the fact that this medium has no censorship till now. This is also for the fact that this medium is the future. Moreover digital media will help us in showing the truth rather than pleasing hundred people for showing something far from the truth”.

Patralekha who will be seen in an important character in the web-series was ecstatic to be part of such a project. Her grandmother had met Netaji and she had grown up listening to those stories. So when she bagged this role, it was a dream come true for her.


The research for the project went on for about a year and it took another eight months to write the show. The series has been shot in Kolkata, Leh, Mumbai, Thailand and Poland.

The nine episodes of Bose will begin streaming from 20th November. Download the app and enjoy the great cinematic experience.
