Vivek Oberoi is making a film on the successful Balakot attack led by the Indian Armed Forces.The film will be a trilingual feature film in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The film will be shot in Jammu & Kashmir, Delhi and Agra and will be going on floor end of the year.
It will encapsulate a string of events that took place starting with the attack in Pulwama where 40 jawans were martyred, followed by India’s well documented air-strike behind the enemy lines in Balakot. The film will unfold a gripping story of events including the release of Wing Commander Abhinandan, Squadron leader Minty Agarwal and many unknown heroes of Indian Air Force.
Talking about the film Vivek shared, “This film is a powerful tool to underline the achievements of brave officers like Abhinandan, who went behind enemy lines and did what makes every Indian proud of them. The Balakot airstrike was one of the most well-planned attacks by the IAF. I followed everything in the news, right from the attack in Pulwama to the airstrike. There was a lot that was speculated and spoken about back then; this film will put all of that to rest, once and for all. I thank the IAF for trusting us with this story and we hope to do justice to it.”
