zee5 Produced by Contiloe Pictures, the film will be based on the 2002 attack at Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Excited about donning the uniform in the film, Khanna in a statement shared, “To be able to wear ‘the uniform’ without taking the oath of the ultimate sacrifice — this is a privilege that only an actor is afforded. The National Security Guard (NSG) pinned down the terrorists and brought the situation under control. The film comes after the platform’s re-telling of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks in State of Siege: 26/11. My only focus during the making has been not to disrespect that privilege.”
