Sanjay Leela Bhansali announces film on Balakot air strikes, Abhishek Kapoor joins as director
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all set to co-produce a film based on the 2019 Balakot air strikes in collaboration with Bhushan Kumar.
Mahaveer Jain and Pragya Kapoor are also among the producers while 'Kedarnath' director Abhishek Kapoor will helm the film based on the airstrikes conducted by India on terror camps in Pakistan in February. "A story that celebrates the accomplishments of the Indian Air Force," is how the makers have 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 marks the second movie to be based on India's action against terror camps, after actor Vivek Oberoi's production 'Balakot: The True Story'.
The film will be a cinematic portrayal of the airstrikes that the Indian air force executed against terrorist camps in Pakistan, days after a terror attack on CRPF convoy in Jammu Kashmir's Pulwama claimed the lives of over 40 paramilitary personnel.
