South actor Pranitha Subhash has boarded the cast of Ajay Devgn’s Bhuj: The Pride of India.
The actor is best known for starring in several commercially successful Telugu and Tamil films such as Baava, Attarintiki Daredi, Massu Engira Masilamani and Enakku Vaaitha Adimaigal. She was most recently seen in music video “Chan Kitthan”, opposite Ayushmann Khurrana.
To be written and directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya, the film will feature Ajay as Vijay Karnik, an IAF Wing Commander, who was in charge of the Bhuj airport during the 1971 war between India and Pakistan
Karnik, along with 50 Air Force and 60 defence security officers, played an instrumental role in keeping the airbase operational despite facing heavy bombing from Pakistan
The airstrip was damaged during the shelling but Karnik and his team, with the help of 300 local women, reconstructed it so that a flight carrying Indian Army officers could land safely. The film is set to arrive in the theatres on August 14, 2020. Bhuj will be co-produced by Krishan Kumar, Ginny Khanuja, Vajir Singh and Dhudhaiya.
