Actor Varun Tej will make his Hindi debut with a dramatic action film inspired by the Indian Air Force, the makers announced on Monday. Based on real events, the film will be shot in Hindi and Telugu. He is described as a patriotic performer on the edge of the siege.
The film will showcase the indomitable spirits of India’s frontline heroes and the challenges they face as they fight off one of the largest and fiercest air attacks the country has ever seen.
The untitled project will be produced by Pictures International Productions and Rennaisance Pictures. It will mark the directorial debut of Adman Shakti Pratap Singh Hada.
Tej, known for his Telugu films such as ”Kanche”, ”Fidaa”, ”Tholi Prema” and ”Gaddalakonda Ganesh”, said he was delighted to play the role of an officer of the Indian Air Force in the new film.
“In partnership with global giant Sony Pictures International Productions, Sandeep Mudda and director Shakti Pratap Singh Hada, we are striving to make a film that we hope will be a perfect tribute to the Indian Air Force.
”The script for this film is a challenge to get out of my previous roles. As an (IAF) officer, my character has layers that will be interesting for me to showcase in this film. I’m going to go through an immense workout and I’m excited to see how the public will react to this one,’ the 32-year-old actor said in a statement.
Hada also wrote the screenplay in collaboration with Aamir Khan and Siddharth Raj Kumar. The bilingual film is expected to hit theaters by the end of 2022 and hit theaters in 2023.
