Looks like Pakistanis will never let Indians forget about their little misadventure in Pakistan, Balakot to be precise.
Soon after Kangana Ranaut shared a new look of her upcoming film Tejas in which she is seen standing next to a jet in uniform, Feroze Khan invited the actor to Pakistan for tea.
“New jets?,” commented Feroze. “I see! Come over for chai (tea) sometime with us.”
The Pakistani actor was referring to last year’s incident in which the Pakistan Air Force shot down an Indian jet in Balakot and captured the pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. However, he was released a day later by Prime Minister Imran Khan as a goodwill gesture to promote peace between the two countries.
Feroze comments sent his fans from both sides of the border into a tizzy, who then started arguing among themselves.
Later, Feroze engaged with some of the Indian trolls himself and said that he will “fight for what I think is right”.
According to Kangana, who will play and Indian Air Force pilot in the film, Tejas “is an ode to our brave airforce pilots”.
The film which is being produced by the makers of Uri: The Surgical Strike is scheduled to go on floors by the end of this year.
Speaking about the film, Kangana, in a statement said: “Tejas is an exhilarating story where I have the privilege of playing an air force pilot. I am honoured to be a part of a film that celebrates these brave men and women in uniform who make immense sacrifices in the line of duty every day. Our film celebrates the armed forces and its heroes.”
Meanwhile, director Sarvesh Mewara while speaking about the project said: “My film is a reflection of the current sentiment in our country. We celebrate our armed forces and I hope to further evoke a spirit of patriotism and nationalism through my storytelling. Kangana is a strong woman with a voice that resonates with the youth of this nation and I cannot wait to begin shooting with Kangana.”
The film is expected to be shot in Mumbai and Rajasthan. A release date has not yet been announced.
