Kher_1  BY SHALINI DORE

“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.
