“On the occasion of the 90th glorious Indian Air Force Day, I send my warmest wishes to our heroes in the sky. They have been relentless in their pursuit to keep our country safe and now that I have an opportunity in portraying an Air Force pilot myself, I have really been able to understand the selfless sacrifices that they make. Flying has always been a dream for me and I hope one day I can earn a license to fly. A big thank you to our air warriors, for everything they do.”
Varun Tej will next be seen playing an Air Force pilot in Sony Pictures International Productions’ Telugu-Hindi action drama that is set to go on floors by end of this year and will have a global release in 2023. The film is based on true events, and will showcase the indomitable spirits of our heroes on the frontlines and the challenges they face as they fight one of the biggest, fiercest aerial attacks that India has ever seen.
Produced by Sony Pictures International Productions and Rennaisance Pictures, this patriotic, edge-of-the-seat entertainer will be directed by Shakti Pratap Singh Hada– a seasoned ad-film maker, cinematographer and VFX aficionado who will also be seen marking his directorial debut with this film. Written by Shakti Pratap Singh Hada, Aamir Khan and Siddharth Raj Kumar, the movie will be shot in Telugu and Hindi simultaneously.
