Following the epic success of Aditya Dhar’s Uri: The Surgical Strike, featuring Vicky Kaushal, producers have been really busy to earn accolades for movies based on patriotism. Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Abhishek Kapoor are two of the names that grabbed attention.
In the wake of the recently-concluded Balakot air strikes on February 26, a movie is on the cards which will be co-produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, as per daily. The movie is expected to be directed by Abhishek Kapoor. It has been learnt that casting is in the process and several A-listers have also expressed their interest but an official nod is yet to be given.
After the air strikes, the representatives of at least five production houses rushed to IMMPA to snap up the movie titles.
From Pulwama: The Terror Attack and Pulwama Attack Versus Surgical Strikes 2.0 to Surgical Strike 2.0 and Balakot, many mobie titles have already been reserved by production houses.
As per the data provided by a trade magazine, other titles like War Room, Hindustan Hamara Hai, Pulwama Terror Attack, The Attacks of Pulwama, With Love, From India, and ATS – One Man Show have also been snapped up.
Bhansali hogged the limelight the other day when it was announced that he would be teaming up with Salman Khan for a love story.
As per a source quoted by a daily, “He had discussed the idea with Salman before the release of his last directorial, Padmaavat. Salman is equally excited to collaborate with him. Sanjay has been working on three scripts simultaneously and was in talks with several big actors. He has finally decided to go ahead with this one which will be spearheaded by Salman.”
Supposedly, Bhansali is curious to see Deepika Padukone taking the female lead role. However, Salman wants his Bharat co-star Katrina Kaif. Previously, Salman had colloborated with Bhansali in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
