Kangana Ranaut is all set to portray the role of an Air Force pilot. The Indian Air Force was the first of the country’s defence forces to induct women into combat roles in 2016. The film takes inspiration from this landmark event.
Ronnie, who earlier backed Uri: The Surgical Strike which was also based on Indian forces, expressed his excitement of bringing yet another story that will inspire people to value our forces. He said he is hoping that this story will inspire many women to join the Air Force.
The first look of the film was released earlier in February which featured Kangana donning the Air Force uniform. She captioned the post, “For all the brave hearted and strong headed women in Uniform who make sacrifices for our nation day in and day out …. Kangana to play an airforce pilot in her next , titled – #TEJAS“.
Directed by Sarvesh Mewara and bankrolled by Ronnie Screwvala, Tejas is scheduled to release in April 2021 but may get pushed ahead due to pandemic.
