Starring and written by Adivi Sesh, Major is inspired by the life of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, the NSG commando who lost his life while rescuing hostages during the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai in 2008.

Adivi Sesh said that the film will explore the unknown side of the real-life hero. “The world only knows how heroic he was and how he died in his final moments. But, everything I loved about him was the way he lived. 26/11 was not the chapter that defined him. Yes, it was an important chapter. But, he was a captain in 7th Bihar when he fought in Kargil. He served in Hyderabad. He went to the National Defence Academy. He was a training officer in the National Security Guard. I was interested in how beautifully he lived his life. That’s what I wanted to make a movie about,” the actor had earlier told

The biopic, which was simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi, also stars Saiee Manjrekar. The film, helmed by Sashi Kiran Tikka, will hit the theatres on July 2.
