Mumbai, August 28
Kangana Ranaut stars within the Air Force saga Tejas, and on Friday it was introduced that the movie will go on flooring in December. The actress performs a fighter pilot within the movie.
” ‘Tejas’ is an exhilarating story where I have the privilege of playing an Air Force pilot. I am honoured to be a part of a film that celebrates these brave men and women in uniform who make immense sacrifices in the line of duty every day. Our film celebrates the armed forces and its heroes,” Kangana stated.
The actress shared the movie’s poster on Twitter and wrote: “#Tejas to take-off this December! Proud to be part of this exhilarating story that is an ode to our brave airforce pilots! Jai Hind #FridaysWithRSVP @sarveshmewara1 @RonnieScrewvala.” Written and directed by Sarvesh Mewara, the movie is produced by Ronnie Screwvala.
“We were in the midst of prep when the world was hit by this unfortunate pandemic. I’m pleased to announce that we are resuming work and will commence shoot later this year,” Screwvala stated.
He added: “The idea of developing a story around a woman fighter pilot was born in-house by Salona Bains Joshi, associate producer on the project, and I backed it instantly. With Kangana as the lead, I hope our film inspires many more women to join the Indian Air Force.” The Indian Air Force was the primary of the nation’s defence forces to induct girls into fight roles, in 2016. The movie takes inspiration from this landmark occasion.
Director Sarvesh Mewara stated that the movie is a mirrored image of the present sentiment in our nation.
“We celebrate our armed forces and I hope to further evoke a spirit of patriotism and nationalism through my storytelling. Kangana is a strong woman with a voice that resonates with the youth of this nation and I cannot wait to begin shoot with her,” he stated.
The film is slated to launch in April 2021.
