With every look of The Ghazi Attack, we’re getting more and more curious about the film. Starring an ensemble cast of Rana Daggubati, Taapsee Pannu, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and more, the film depicts a tale not many of us know about. The story goes way back in the 1970s when Bangaldesh was at war with Pakistan, that later dragged in India. It is based on the real life incidents during the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation war, which led to disappearance of the Pakistani submarine, PNS Ghazi under mysterious circumstances. The film is being produced in Hindi as well, by Dharma Productions. This latest poster has Rana, Atul and Kay Kay Menon emerge out of the submarine, which later disappeared mysteriously. You can see that while the three actors on the poster are looking around for a way to guide their submarine to, in the background, the tri-colour’s touch leaves a lasting impact.
With today being Republic Day, perhaps there couldn’t have been a better opportunity for the filmmaker to pay tribute to the nation! The poster surely leaves us with a feeling of patriotism as we see it. Ever since the trailer has surfaced, curiosity around the film has only intensified. A lot of celebs have lauded the trailer and called it intriguing. The fact that this tale has never been spoken of before makes it all the more exciting. Not to forget, Daggubati’s hot naval officer avatar. While it does digress from the seriousness of the story but the women will certainly have more reasons to watch the film, apart from it’s plotline. Although the film is slated to release in three weeks, i.e. February 17, the promotions for the same have begun in full swing. If you notice, the cast mostly includes celebs from Bollywood.

In an interview, exclusively with BollywoodLife, Rana had divulged on what it’s like to sail in a submarine. The actor said, “We built two large submarines in Hyderabad and we shot in two languages, Hindi and Telugu. It’s based on true events that happened in 1971 before the war broke out in India. So it’s one of those conspiracy tales that wasn’t told and when we heard it, we thought it was a very important story to tell. And it happened on the coast of Vizag, which is a place where I grew up in my childhood, where I know of very well. It was rather difficult in terms of sitting inside a submarine and shooting for it. Inside a submarine you lose track of time, daylight (which we didn’t figure when we got in), but we are very excited.”
