Karthik Aryan did not lose his spirits despite being ousted from two big film projects of Karan Johar and Shahrukh Khan's film production companies.. Earlier, veteran producer Sajid Nadiadwala announced his romantic comedy film and now veteran producers like Harman Baweja and Ronnie Screwvala are going to make an aerial action film with Kartik.
After the announcement of director Siddharth Anand's Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone starrer film 'Fighter', a new trend of aerial action films seem to be starting in Hindi cinema. A film set against the backdrop of airstrikes, 'Bhuj the Pride of India' is set to release next month.
According to the information, 'Captain India' will be an attempt to retell the story of one of the most successful rescue operations in Indian history. Hansal Mehta has taken over the command of its direction. Kartik Aaryan says, "The film 'Captain India' is an inspirational and thrilling story and with this, I feel proud and honored to be a part of such a historical chapter of the country. It has been an honor and this is the right opportunity to collaborate with him.”
Hansal Mehta, director of the film 'Captain India' says, "The film is inspired by true events and will re-enact a time where a man saves thousands of lives by putting aside his pain and suffering. It's a pleasure working with Screwvala and Harman Baweja and I am also looking forward to working with Karthik."
Producer Ronnie Screwvala says, "Captain India is not only the story of one of the greatest humanitarian acts of all time but also about the indomitable human spirit where one rises above failure despite the odds. Hansal Mehta of our times. One of the finest filmmakers and has always captured the true essence of human stories beautifully." The shooting of 'Captain India' will start next year.
Apart from Karthik Aryan, the name of no other artist has been revealed from the lead cast of the film. Along with the announcement of the film, its makers also released a poster in which Kartik Aaryan is seen wearing a uniform.
