Created by Ronnie Wintvala and actor-turned-producer Harman Baweja, the drama is inspired by India’s largest and most successful rescue missions from a war-torn country.
Aaryan will play the role of a pilot in the film, and the actor said that it is a great honor for him to participate in this project.
Captain India is equally inspiring and exciting, and it is a great pride and honor for me to be a part of such a historic head of our country.
“I have great respect for Sir Hansal’s work and it was a great opportunity to work with him,” Aaryan said in a statement.
Vintwala said that the film captures an indomitable human spirit, and Mehta, best known for Shahid, Aligarh and Fraud 1992, is the perfect person to reveal its humane aspect.
Captain India is not only the story of one of the largest humanitarian operations in history, but also an indomitable human spirit that, despite everything, overcomes defeat.
“Hansal Mehta is one of the best directors of our time, he has always perfectly reflected the true essence of humane stories. Fans of Kartik Aaryan will surely have fun when he steps into brand new territory with Captain India, ”he added.
Baveja, who also wrote the film, said Captain India is the perfect balance of “inspiring human history and immersive cinematic experience.”
“This step as a producer has been a long one, and I am delighted to be working with the same passionate team of Ronnie Vintwal, Hansal Mehta and Kartik Aaryan.
“I’m sure this story will resonate with every Indian,” said 40-year-old Baveja, who previously starred in films such as Love Story 2050 and What kind of Raashi are you?
Mehta said he is looking forward to working with Aarian.
Captain India, inspired by real life events, will return to the moment in time when a person transcends his own pain and suffering to save thousands of people, ”he said.
The film will be produced by Vicky Bahri, and Sonia Kanwar of RSVP will be an associate producer.
Captain India will hit the site early next year.
