My first major documentary, The Forgotten Army was filmed with her. I drove with her from Singapore to India through Malaysia and Burma...  It took us three months to complete the journey. She was 86 at that time. I have never seen such spirit in anybody even half her age... She was the commander of the Rani Jhansi regiment of the INA. She went to battle against the British for India's independence... True... its really sad that nobody remembers these heroes... Thats why my film was called the Forgotten Army,' he wrote.
