Going by the success of the film ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ and the patriotic feeling that has gripped the nation, four Bollywood filmmakers have come together to make another war movie. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bhushan Kumar, Abhishek Kapoor and Mahaveer Jain have joined hands to make a film on the recent Balakot air strikes. After the tragic Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir, which took the lives of 40 jawans, the Balakot strike was undertaken by the Indian Air Force (IAF), which also included Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. This Bollywood film will reportedly feature a major portion on the Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, whose return to India, after being captured in Pakistan, became heroic. The makers are yet to finalise the cast but one can expect a list of A-list actors being approached.
