A couple of weeks ago Kangana Ranaut had announced that she will be portraying the role of Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot in the film titled 'Tejas'. Now, the makers of the film have unveiled the first look of the actress. 'Tejas' is the story of a daring fighter pilot, played by Kangana.
The Indian Air Force was the first of the country's defence forces to induct women into combat roles in 2016. The film takes inspiration from this landmark event.
In the photo, the actress is seen walking in style and looks stunning in IAF uniform with a fighter plane in the backdrop.
Talking about the film, Kangana told Mumbai Mirror, "Very often, the sacrifices made by our brave women in uniform go unnoticed by the nation. Tejas is a film where I have the honor of playing the role of one such Air Force pilot who puts country before self. I hope we instill a sense of patriotism and pride in the youth of today with this movie. I’m looking forward to the journey with Sarvesh and Ronnie on this one."
Integrity, courage, and honor are the three pillars on which the story of Tejas is based. The script is crafted to make audiences feel the adrenaline rush that India’s brave soldiers experience daily, without once thinking of personal gain or needs. Following one of its core themes, Tejas brings an exhilarating account of what women can achieve when given a chance. Written and to be directed by Sarvesh Mewara, this is RSVP’s second film after Uri: The Surgical Strike that salutes the forces and aims to inspire the country at large. 'Tejas' is set to go on floors this summer and release in April 2021.
