Abhishek in war drama

Bollywood’s veteran filmmaker JP Dutta, who is known for ‘Border’ is all set to make a comeback with his next war drama titled ‘Paltan’.

The directorial will be based on Indo-China war that took place in 1962.

While the filmmaker, like his previous outings, plans to rope in actual soldiers for the movie, his Bollywood brigade includes Abhishek Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Suniel Shetty, Sonu Sood, Jimmy Shergill, Pulkit Samrat, Luv Sinha, Siddhant Kapoor and Jackie Shroff.

Shares JP Dutta, “It’s time we diverted our attention to our other neighbour, who is a bigger threat than Pakistan. A mighty power in world politics, China is claiming Arunachal Pradesh as a part of its territory.

Even their map shows the state as a part of their country. During the 1962 war, China took over a large part of Ladakh and feels that the remaining area belongs to it, too. It’s a discussion waiting to happen, which makes my film’s subject relevant.”
