Mumbai: Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all set to co-produce a film based on the 2019 Balakot Air Strikes in collaboration with Bhushan Kumar.
Mahavir Jain and Pragya Kapoor are also among the producers, while ‘Kedarnath’ director Abhishek Kapoor will conduct the film based on the airstrikes carried out by India in terrorist camps in Pakistan in February.
“A story that celebrates the achievements of the Indian Air Force,” is how the makers described the film.
“IT’S OFFICIAL… Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain, and Pragya Kapoor to make a film on 2019 Balakot Airstrike… Directed by Abhishek Kapoor” tweeted film critic Adarsh along with a banner.
This is the second film based on action against terrorist camps in India after actor Vivek Oberoi’s production ‘Balakot: The True Story’.
A few days after the terror attack on CRPF convoy in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian Air Force carried out an airstrike against terrorist camps in Pakistan, it claimed to have killed more than 40 soldiers.
