“Thankfully there’s no censorship on OTT, but sensationalism will only provoke authorities”

The latest entrant in this universe is filmmaker Kabir Khan, whose The Forgotten Army starts streaming on Amazon Prime today (Jan. 24).His debut on streaming platforms follows the success of filmmakers such as Zoya Akhtar (Made in Heaven), Karan Johar (Lust Stories), and Anurag Kashyap (Sacred Games). Taking off from a documentary he made 20 years ago, The Forgotten Army is about the foot soldiers of the Indian National Army who sought to overthrow the British Indian government after World War II. The lesser known story of the Rani Jhansi regiment, the first female infantry regiment in the world, forms the core of the narrative.
