Vivek Oberoi to Produce Multilingual Movie on Balakot IAF Strikes
Vivek Oberoi is all set to add a new dimension to his patriotic fervour. After playing the role of Narendra Modi in the Prime Minister’s biopic, the actor will be producing a movie based on the Balakot airstrikes to salute the valour of the Indian Air Force (IAF).
Titled as Balakot, the cast of the movie have yet to be finalised. However, established actors from the industry will be seen in all the pivotal roles, reports have suggested.
“As a proud Indian, a patriot, and a member of the film fraternity, it’s my duty to highlight what our Armed Forces are truly capable of. In the form of a trilingual, this film is a powerful tool to underline the achievements of brave officers like Wing Commander Abhinandan, who went behind the enemy lines and did what makes every Indian proud of them,” said Vivek.
The movie will portray the episode of the airstrike, leading up to the capture of IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman and his subsequent release, which all took place in the Pulwama district on February 14.
The film will go on floors this year and is expected to release in 2020. It will be shot in the backdrop of Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi and Agra.
