Dharma Productions has announced India’s first war-at-sea film, The Ghazi Attack. They will be producing it along with AA Films, Matinee Ent and PVP Cinema. The film will hit the theatres on February 17, 2017.
Ghazi stars Rana Daggubati as a Navy officer and Taapsee Pannu as a refugee. The film is made in Telugu and Hindi and will be dubbed in Tamil too. Karan Johar has earlier distributed Hindi version of Baahubali. Rana had also done a cameo in Karan’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani as a photographer.
Rana plays the role of a righteous captain. The actor said in an interview “I get excited by the content. Ghazi has great content that can break the language barriers,”.
The tale of The Ghazi Attack talks about the valiant Navy officers who stayed underwater for 18 days. It is directed by debutant director Sankalp and is based on his own novel, Blue Fish. Ghazi also has Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and Akshay Mittal. It will release one week after Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2.
