Ishaan Khatter on the difference between working in Bollywood and Hollywood: ‘Human emotion never changes’
Ishaan had unveiled the trailer of Pippa on the occasion of his birthday. The trailer transported us to a historical moment when India engaged in the Battle of Garibpur on the eastern front. Captain Balram Singh Mehta took charge of the squadron after their leader fell during the mission. Alongside his siblings, he stood at the forefront of the war, playing a pivotal role in India’s pursuit of victory. With the resounding war cry, “We fight like soldiers, kill like soldiers, and die like soldiers,” the Indian forces gave their utmost, ultimately leading to the liberation of Bangladesh.
Director Raja Krishna Menon had shared, “When I read Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta’s book ‘The Burning Chaffees’, I was absolutely certain that this inspiring and lesser-known story of triumph, needed to be shared with the world. I believe we have been able to create an apt tribute to our armed forces, by bringing to life this story that is hidden in the annals of our rich history. I would like to thank Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur for believing in my vision and I am eternally grateful to Ishaan, Mrunal, Priyanshu, Soni Ji, the entire crew and every member of the cast who have given it their all. With Prime Video, I am confident that Pippa will be well received by audiences within India as well around the world.”
The film will start streaming on an OTT platform from November 10 onwards.
