Of the many freedom fighters whose names have drowned in our vast historical records (look below), National Award winning director Ananth Mahadevan shall be casting a spotlight on one noteworthy person: Gour Hari Das, who reportedly went through a thirty-decade conflict to be recognised for his role in freeing the country from the British rule.
The octogenarian's life is being converted into a biopic 'Gour Hari Dastaan - The Freedom File', which shall feature several actors including Vinay Pathak, Konkana Sen Sharma (who plays Hari Das's wife), Tannishtha Chatterjee, Ranvir Shorey, and several others.

Das is also reported to play a part in the film itself. While his story shall unfold on the silver screen on August 15, here's a look at some of India's lesser-recognised heroes who fought for our country's freedom, yet remained in the shadows.
