Ahead of India’s 74th Republic Day celebrations, the makers of Sara Ali Khan's Ae Watan Mere Watan shared the actor's first look from the upcoming Amazon Original movie. The film is an inspiring tribute to the fearless heroes of India’s struggle for freedom.
Directed by Kannan Iyer and written jointly by Darab Farooqui and Kannan Iyer, the film will see Sara Ali Khan play the character of a valiant freedom fighter. Sara surprised fans after she unveiled her first look as a brave freedom fighter in the upcoming film Ae Watan Mere Watan. The movie is a thriller inspired by true events.
The first-look video transports viewers to a bygone era where a tensed yet focused young girl played by Sara expertly assembles a radio-like device in a dimly lit room. Sara Ali Khan, in a never-seen-before, non-glamorous avatar, is sure to impress fans with her impeccable acting chops this time. As she begins to speak on the radio, her voice is imbued with courage and determination; she shares the message of independence with the entire nation via her underground radio station, until she is interrupted by the incessant banging at the door.
Sara Ali Khan, who is extremely delighted and honoured to play such a character, shared her happiness in a press statement and said, “As an actor, and more importantly as an Indian, I am proud to be able to portray a character that echoes bravery, strength, and courage. And while, of course, it is very challenging to essay a character that is vastly different from anything that I’ve done before, it is a project I’m going to work really hard on. And most importantly, I’m going to cherish every day that I get to play an enigmatic freedom fighter.”
The thriller-drama is inspired by true events and it follows the intrepid journey of a college girl in Bombay who goes on to become a freedom fighter. This fictional tale is set against the backdrop of the Quit India Movement in 1942. It is a story about the courage, patriotism, sacrifice, and resourcefulness of the youth of the nation. The film is bankrolled by Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta, with Somen Mishra serving as the co-producer.
