The film's director Tigmanshu Dhulia says it is to honour the heroes of the Independence struggle.

"To launch the trailer of Raagdesh in the Parliament honours the heroes of the Independence struggle. It is the first time that Parliament has allowed a trailer launch and that in itself is a big honour for our film," Dhulia said in a statement.

Raagdesh is the story of the famous Red Fort trial of the Three INA officers that changed the course of India's freedom movement.

Talking about the film, Dhulia said: "The Red Fort trial is one of the most interesting and relevant parts of our Independence history. And Raagdesh is about that fascinating case."

The film's cast includes Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Mohit Marwah. It is presented by Rajya Sabha TV and produced by Gurdeep Singh Sappal.

Raagdesh is slated to release on July 28.
