How many episodes are there in The Forgotten Army?

The show will be made up of five episodes according to the website IMDB.

In a previous interview director Khan said: “In 1999 I had made The Forgotten Army documentary about the Indian National Army by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

“I need to transform that into a movie. But when I got an opportunity to do something for Amazon India, I made a decision to alter my initial plans.”

Each episode will be quite short, with a running time of about 25 minutes.

The show is about the true story of Indian soldiers who marched towards the capital to free their country from British rule.

The Indian National Army (INA) was led by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

Men and women fought and risked their lives to free India, but their story was never recorded and they became ‘the forgotten army’.

The series also includes a love story between two central characters.
