The web series starring Abay Deol under the direction of Mahesh Manjrekar is based on the 1962 India-China war, the title is taken after the storyline naming 1962. A source close to the project states, “1962 is a web series shot on a grand scale and depicts the happenings of the war in great detail. At the same time, director Mahesh Manjrekar has managed to make it entertaining and engaging. Abhay Deol, Sumeet Vyas, and other actors have done a commendable job as actors. It’s something to watch out for.”
The source added "1962 is expected to be out once the IPL gets over in the second week of November. The makers feel this is the right time to release as the anti-China sentiment is quite high in the country right now.” Incidentally, the war between India and China in 1962 arose out of a dispute regarding the border. It began on October 20, 1962, and ended a month later after China declared a ceasefire.
There isn't any ongoing buzz regarding the web series. The only visible fact is when Abhay Deol posted a pic on Instagram in November 2019. It showed both sleeping and Abhay Deol’s funny caption was 'I finally did it. I slept with my director @hotstar'. Hopefully, the web series '1962' brings out the energy the country needs right now amidst this chaos.
