Benegal in trouble!

Bollywood News

The depiction of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's marriage in a new film on the national hero has landed its director Shyam Benegal in controversy. Five researchers on Bose in Bengal plan to take Benegal's Bose - The Forgotten Hero to court for showing him married in the film. They claim they have proof that Netaji never married Austrian Emilie Schenkl, as shown in the movie. According to researchers, Netaji's application for a visa to visit China on November 23, 1939, mentioned his marital status as 'single.' Netaji's family says he married Schenkl secretly in 1937. Researchers also urged Benegal to desist from showing that Netaji died in the 1945 air crash. Bose and Schenkl's daughter Anita Pfaff and her husband Professor Martin Pfaff, a former member of the German parliament, have visited India several times.
