It may be confusing if you think why the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi would actually make a film on Balakot Airstrikes. But, we are talking about the On-screen Modi, Vivek Oberoi. Vivek Oberoi, who played PM Narendra Modi in his last outing, has decided to produce a movie based on the Balakot airstrikes to salute the valor of Indian armed forces.
Actor Vivek Oberoi will produce a film based on Balakot airstrikes led by Indian Air Force in February 2019 after a terror attack in Kashmir's Pulwama district. "Hollywood filmmakers applaud their Armed Forces... Why should Indian filmmakers shy away from doing that for India," he said.
Titled Balakot, the film will be based on the airstrikes as well as the capture and subsequent release of IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman in the aftermath of the terror attack in Kashmir's Pulwama district on February 14.
To be shot in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, the film will feature established actors from these industries in pivotal roles, including that of Wing Commander Abhinandan, who was later awarded Vir Chakra, and Squadron Leader Minty Agarwal, who guided the IAF's interception mission launched to stop Pakistan's fighter jets. Apparently, she was the first woman to be honored with the Yudh Seva Medal.
