Ajay Drvgn’s next movie is based on a true incident and is one of India’s most fascinating war stories. Devgn will be essaying the role of Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik, who was in charge of the Bhuj airport during the 1971 Indo-Pak war.
It was Karnik and his team, with the help of the local women, who reconstructed the destroyed Indian Air Force airstrip at Bhuj in Gujarat, in what could be termed as India’s ‘Pearl Harbour’ moment.
Bhuj: The Pride of India, a Gulshan Kumar presentation along with T-Series and Select Media Holdings LLP, jointly celebrate the courage of Karnik and his team. Written and directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya, the film will be produced by Ginny Khanuja, Vajir Singh, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, and Abhishek Dudhaiya.
