We didnt sugarcoat anything. - Rajkumar Santoshi on Gandhi Godse Ek Yuddh 

One of the most successful Bollywood directors of the 90s, Rajkumar Santoshi has been away from the film industry for nearly a decade. His last film was released in 2013 and now he is all set to make a comeback with the film 'Gandhi Godse Ek Yuddh'. In a recent media interaction, the filmmaker opened up about his decade long break and about the content of his film.

According to a report in The Indian Express, Santoshi said, "I want to first of all erase the 9-year gap. I don’t want people to look at me as someone who is making a comeback to filmmaking. More than anything, I want the audience to think that I’ve made a film worth watching.”

Talking about how he has tried to project ideologies of Gandhi and Godse, the director said, "We have made the film with honesty. It is a bold film and the dialogues are written in a way that has never been attempted before. We have not manipulated anything, we have presented the thoughts of Gandhi and Godse in dialogue form. They are hard-hitting and we have not sugar coated anything.”

Rajkumar Santoshi also recalled that his team was worried about getting certification from censor board since his film deals with a very sensitive issue. He stated, "We were worried and then when they saw the film, they seemed emotional and said it is a good film and I told them we have removed the surname. But I was told later it is not needed and rather they said the film should be shown in colleges and schools. This is the compliment I got from the censor board."
