Even as a lot has been said about Mahatma Gandhi’s contribution to India’s Independence, not many people are aware that he had to face stiff opposition even from his close aides from the Indian National Congress.

Now following the success of recent originals like ‘Karenjit Kaur- The Untold story of Sunny Leone’, ‘Lockdown’, Akoon, ‘Lal Bahadur Shastri’s Death – An Unfinished Story’ among others ZEE5 is set to stream ‘Khaar’, a docudrama on Mahatma Gandhi’s significant Dandi March to Dandi,. The film will be premiered on 2nd October exclusively on ZEE5 on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. .

Khaar unfolds the many challenges that Gandhiji faced before initiating the Dandi March, and triggering the most dramatic chain of events that led to India’s independence.

The docudrama features Surendra Rajan as Mahatma Gandhi, Sanjay Gurbaxani as Nehru, Amit Singh Thakur as Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Tarakesh Chauhan as Maulana Azad. To give the audience an immersive experience, the show has Annu Kapoor lending his voice as a narrator.

Commenting on his association with ZEE5 and as the narrator of ‘Khaar’, Annu Kapoor revealed that “The Dandi March initiated by Gandhiji was an iconic movement against the British and a milestone in India’s movement for freedom. Today’s youth are hardly aware of the real story behind the movement and what better than a digital medium like ZEE5 to reach out to them with the truth behind the mission. I am extremely proud to lend my voice to this docudrama and thankful to ZEE5 for taking the initiative to recreate the story in an engaging way.”

Manish Aggarwal, Business Head, ZEE5 India commented, “We take pride in announcing Khaar as our latest offering to the audience on Gandhi Jayanti –Khaar’ which is another effort in that direction. The well-researched story dives deeper into the other side of history and Gandhiji’s ideology, with a gripping storyline backed by Annu Kapoor’s spellbinding narration. We are certain that Khaar will not only entertain audiences but also give them an opportunity to learn about unknown facts of the Dandi March.
