Ahead of the film’s theatrical release, the makers have released a new trailer showcasing key highlights of his life when he was a member of RSS.
The new trailer shares glimpses from his regime when was the Prime Minister and even during his time in a political party. The promotional video shows Vajpayee saying that the word is spreading and that RSS is a communal party and therefore a threat to the country.
