Hitler_braun  “Eva had been Hitler’s girlfriend since she was 17 years old. The film shows how she comes in his life in his last days. It will be a romance but not in the typical sense,” Kumar told the Indian press.

“As a leader he was successful. I want to show why did he lose as a human being? What were the problems, what were the issues, what were his intentions?”

The title, based on two letters Mahatma Gandhi wrote to Hitler begging him not to go to war, “Dear Friend Hitler” is set to be released at the end of this year.
