Mumbai: Big budget film maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has announced the his new film of the Balakot air strike by Indian Airforce.

The announcement of the movie was officially made on Friday on Twitter.

The “Rock On!” director Abhishek Kapoor has also joined hands with producers Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain and Pragya Kapoor for a film based on the Balakot airstrike.
The project will also be backed by Mahaveer Jain and Pragya Kapoor. It will be the second film on the February 26, 2019 air strike against terror outfits in Balakot in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province after the Vivek Oberoi starrer “Balakot – The True Story”.
Bhansali said the film is his tribute to the heroes “who have made India their priority”. “It is a story of bravery, patriotism and love for the country… We endeavour that their story and bravery reaches to everyone in the right way,” the “Padmaavat” director said.
Following Pulwama terror bombing, in which 40 CRPF troopers were killed on February 14, the Balakot airstrike was conducted by the Indian Air Force in the early morning hours of February 26 when the Indian warplanes crossed the de facto border in the disputed region of Kashmir and dropped bombs in the vicinity of the town of Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan.
