Helmed by Raja Krishna Menon, the project comes from producers Ronnie Screwvala at RSVP and Siddharth Roy Kapur at Roy Kapur Films. The film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Priyanshu Painyuli and Soni Razdan.
The film will commemorate a tank battle that led to the liberation of Bangladesh. The story follows Brigadier Mehta, a veteran of the 45th Cavalry tank squadron, who, along with his siblings, fought on the eastern front during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.
The real-life Brigadier Mehta himself was invited by the production houses to provide the inaugural slate clap as filming commenced.
