The producers of the film have locked the Independence Day week of 2020 for the film’s release. The film is all set to hit the marquee on August 14, 2020.
With Ajay Devgn already leading this project as the makers bring this crucial real-life incident from the history books to the big screen, the film also has Sanjay Dutt’s commanding presence, Sonakshi Sinha’s alluring strength, Rana Daggubati’s versatility and Parineeti Chopra’s vivacity along with Punjabi superstar Ammy Virk’s power-packed performance, which will makes sure that Bhuj: The Pride of India will be a visual treat for the audience.
A man, a civilian, one who helped the Indian Army, Ranchordas Svabhai Ravari ‘Pagi’ is the character played by Sanjay Dutt. The actor plays a pagi, someone who can identify a person’s nationality, gender, height and weight by their footprints.
Sonakshi Sinha is known to be a fearless actress and this makes her perfect to essay the character of Sunderben Jetha Madharparya, a social worker and farmer and the woman who convinced the other 299 women of Madhapur to help build a runway that had been bombed by the Pakistani army during the 1971 Indo-Pak War.
South superstar Rana Daggubati plays the role of a Madras Regiment Lieutenant Colonel who was posted in Vighakot Chowki and fought in the Indo-Pak 1971 war.
The role of the femme-fatale stunner of Heena Rehman, an Indian spy staying in Lahore, will be played by the beauty with substance Parineeti Chopra.
Ammy Virk, after establishing his stardom in Punjabi cinema, will become a part of the Hindi film industry with the role of a squadron leader and a fighter pilot.
Bhuj: The Pride of India celebrates the courage of the 300 women of Madhapur in Gujarat, who played a pivotal part in India’s victory in the 1971 Indo-Pak war. It tells the story of how these women got together to repair the only runway in Bhuj that had been destroyed during the war.
Directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya, the film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vajir Singh, Ginny Khanuja, Abhishek Dudhaiya and Kumar Mangat Pathak under the banners of T-Series and Select Media Holdings LLP.
