When the teaser had come out, everyone thought that this would be another series or show on the lines of Satyamev Jayate only but recently, he held a screening for the industry friends and family and that’s when we got to know that it is a short film produced by Aamir under his home production banner, Aamir Khan Productions and is directed by Svati Chakravarty.

The content of this Republic Day Special has not been revealed and all we know that it is something that will move each and every person watching it. The only hint that Aamir has given is that it will sure be inspiring and thought provoking as it is based on real life stories. The questions that many of us had in mind all this while is, if it is a movie then why is it being released on TV and not in theatres?
On this, a source close to the team revealed:
“Aamir had an option of releasing the film in theatres. But he chose TV as he wanted the film to reach as many people as possible.”
The special screening held by the star was attended by several prominent personalities of Bollywood and many took to Twitter to share what they felt after watching the movie. Here’s what some of them wrote:

Rubaru Roshni, the title of the movie has been inspired by the popular music track ‘Robaroo’ from the film, Rang De Basanti. The song is composed by the very talented A.R.Rahman and the lyrics have been penned down by Prasoon Joshi. The title, Rubaru Roshni means face to face with light and the movie will premiere on 26th January at 11 am.
Aamir Khan was last seen in Thugs of Hindostan which could not impress the audiences but he will be next seen in his dream project Mahabharata reportedly in which he will play Krishna. No official statement has been given yet but we hope the makers soon announce this film as well.
