Bollywood actor and producer Ajay Devgn has announced he will make a film based on the recent Galwan Valley clash, where Chinese troops unethically attacked unarmed Indian soldiers who had gone to the spot to verify if the agreement between the commanders was being honoured. The film will narrate the story of the 20 Indian army men who laid down their lives in the line of duty.
The Indian and Chinese troops clashed fiercely in the intervening night of 15 and 16 June. The actor’s production banner — Ajay Devgn FFilms — and Select Media Holdings LLP will co-produce the film. The film hasn’t yet got a name. Other details about the films are still under the wraps.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the announcement news on Twitter. “IT’S OFFICIAL… #AjayDevgn to make film on #GalwanValley clash… The film — not titled yet — will narrate the story of sacrifice of 20 #Indian army men, who fought the #Chinese army… Cast not finalized… Ajay Devgn FFilms and Select Media Holdings LLP will produce the film,” the tweet read.
Ajay Devgn has, meanwhile, shared a new poster for his sports drama Maidaan. He announced that the film will be released in the week of Independence Day, 13 August 2021. “2021 Independence week. An untold story that will make every Indian proud. 13 August mark the date. #Maidaan2021,” he wrote. The film stars Priyamani, Gajraj Rao and well-known Bengali actor Rudranil Ghosh.
Ajay is already looking forward to the release of his film Bhuj on Disney+Hotstar. This film also is about the 1971 war. It co-stars Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha.
The situation at the India-China border remains tense. The armies of India and China are in talks to ease the ongoing border tension since last month.
Ajay had tweeted about the clash last month, writing, “Salute every soldier who laid down his life protecting India’s border & honour. Jai Jawan, Jai Bharat Folded handsRIP Brave Hearts My thoughts are with your families during this hour. #GalwanValley #IndianArmy.”
