In February, the Indian Air Force conducted an airstrike in Balakot, targeting a major Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp.
Now it appears that a film is being made on the Balakot airstrikes, which will be co-produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Bhushan Kumar. Reportedly, the film will be directed by Abhishek Kapoor (of Rock On! fame).
