Is Kangana Ranaut starrer: Tejas a sequel to Vicky Kaushal‘s Uri: The Surgical Strike? Producer Ronnie Screwvala says that it is not.
Kangana Ranaut’s Tejas is bankrolled by Ronnie Screwvala under his Home banner RSVP and marks the directorial debut of Sarvesh Mewara.
In February, the makers of Kangana Ranaut starrer: Tejas released the 1st look of the flick, where we saw the actress in the avatar of an Indian Airforce Pilot. While the film is expected to go on floors as soon as the lockdown is lifted, there were talks that it is a sequel to Vicky Kaushal’s blockbuster Uri: The Surgical Strike. Clearing the air, producer Ronnie Screwvala said to Mumbai Mirror,
“We wanted to make a film about the army so Uri happened. Tejas is not a sequel to Uri, because that was a true story and this isn’t. but it is on the same lines and on the same scale.”
Talking about Tejas, Kangana Ranaut sometime back told the tabloid,
“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 who puts country before self. I hope we instil a sense of patriotism and pride in the youth of today with this movie. I’m looking forward to the journey with Sarvesh and Ronnie on this one.”
“We made an army-based film with Uri: The Surgical Strike. The film Tejas is our dedication to the brave fighter pilots of the Indian Air Force, who always put the country first. We are excited and honoured to share this brave story with viewers and hope it inspires many more women to join the AirForce,”
Tejas is all set to hit the screens in April 2021.
