After the release of Salman Khan starrer Tubelight on June 23, director Kabir Khan is back to work. Although this time it is not for a movie – but a web series. The Forgotten Army is a project Kabir Khan has been trying to work on since his formative years as a documentary filmmaker. And as per reports, this time the project seems most likely to be realised.

For the leading man in the series, Saif Ali Khan has been approached. The actor will play the protagonist in the series which revolves around the soldiers of the Azad Hind Fauj. The Azad Hind Fauj was an armed force formed by Indian nationalists in 1942 in Southeast Asia during World War II. Its aim was to secure Indian independence from British rule. The Azad Hind Fauj was the only army in the history of wars which also had a woman fighting infantry unit, and was called the Rani of Jhansi Regiment. This means the web series will also see a strong leading woman character, for which Kabir Khan wants to rope in actress Shraddha Kapoor.

A source close to the project said “There’s a very important female character in The Forgotten Army. The Azad Hind Fauj also had the only women fighting infantry unit in the history of wars. It was called the Rani Jhansi regiment. So the female character will be leading that unit in the web series. Kabir wants a Bollywood actress for the role and the team is still working on the casting.”

Kabir Khan is keen on casting Shraddha Kapoor as he believes she is perfect for the role and the makers have also initiated talks with her team regarding the same. Next in line is Parineeti Chopra, however, Kabir wants Shraddha to essay the role.

Speaking about the series Kabir said, “For me, it’s not the story of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. Everyone knows about him, but what about the soldiers in his army? What happened to them? That’s what the web series is about.” He shared that the web series will shoot for about eight episodes. He added, “It’s an epic and pans across six to eight episodes. Each episode will be around 40 minutes long so the total runtime would be almost equivalent to two feature films.”

Meanwhile, Kabir Khan’s directorial Tubelight is seeing a steep downfall in its figures. The film has made Rs. 116 cr at the box office.

Kabir Khan is all charged up to direct a web series, The Forgotten Army, which is about Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army. Kabir is keen on roping in Saif Ali Khan for the same. He says, “Saif is somebody I have been talking to, but nothing is confirmed right now. When things are meant to happen, they will happen.

Saif is one of the few well-read people in this industry who loves having intellectual conversations. My series is not about Netaji, but it’s about the soldiers who are a part of his army. If he does it, then he will be seen as a soldier,” Kabir signs off.

He has played with these subjects in Kabul Express, New York, Phantom and Ek Tha Tiger. Now that Tubelight is up for release, he is gearing up for his next.

After the blockbusters, Kabir will now direct a web series for Amazon Prime Video. Says a source close to Kabir, “He has been wanting to make this subject for a long time. He has lived with this project for years as he discovered it during his days as documentary maker.” The webseries ­— The Forgotten Army — is about Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army. Kabir has approached his Phantom actor Saif Ali Khan for the same.

Men in kurtas anyway have a charm of their own.

The Nawab sure knows how to step out in style each time–be it on screen or off it. He’s been spotted wearing pathani suits several times. From Kabir Khan’s Phantom, where Saif plays an Indian soldier, to casual outings with his Begum Kareena Kapoor Khan, the Hum Tum actor has never shyed away from sporting this trend.
