The makers of Tejas on Monday shared the first look of Kangana Ranaut from the film. In the still, Kangana looks impressive in her Air Force pilot avatar.
Written and directed by Sarvesh Mewara, Tejas is bankrolled by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP. “We made an army-based film with Uri: The Surgical Strike. Tejas is our dedication to the brave fighter pilots of the Indian Air Force who always put the country first,” producer Ronnie Screwvala said in a statement.
Talking about her role in Tejas, Kangana mentioned, “Very often the sacrifices made by our brave women in uniform go unnoticed by the nation. Tejas is a film where I have the honour of playing the role of one such Air Force pilot that puts country before self. I hope we instill a sense of patriotism and pride in the youth of today with this film. I am looking forward to the journey with Sarvesh and Ronnie on this one.”
