According to reports, the movie, which will be titled Balakot will depict the capture and release of IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman after the aerial conflict following the terror attack in Kashmir’s Pulwama district. 

After playing PM Narendra Modi in his biopic, Vivek Oberoi will now be producing a movie which will be based on the Balakot airstrikes.  

On this movie, Vivek Oberoi mentioned

As a proud Indian, a patriot, and a member of the film fraternity, it’s my duty to highlight what our Armed Forces are truly capable of. In the form of a trilingual, this film is a powerful tool to underline the achievements of brave officers like Wing Commander Abhinandan, who went behind the enemy lines and did what makes every Indian proud of them. 

This movie will be shot in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu and will have actors taking up roles of Wing Commander Abhinandan, who was awarded Vir Chakra for his valor, and Squadron Leader Minty Agarwal, who’s the first woman to receive Yudh Seva Medal.   


The film will go into production this year and is expected to release in 2020. It will be shot in Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi and Agra.
