Netaji's connection with Burma was deep. His Azad Hind government-in-exile was headquartered in Rangoon, and his famous battle cry of 'Give me blood and I will give you freedom' was raised at a rally he held in Burma in 1944. Netaji's Indian National Army fought against British troops in the Imphal-Kohima sector during World War II, alongside Burmese and Japanese forces.

The setting for Rangoon is Burma but filming took place in inaccessible locations in Arunachal Pradesh, under difficult conditions. Earlier this month, the cast narrated their experiences of shooting in a video on the making of the film.
