Hansal Mehta added, “Captain India which is inspired by true events will revisit a moment in time where a man goes beyond his own pain and suffering to save thousands. I’m happy to collaborate with Ronnie Screwvala and Harman Baweja on the film and I look forward to working with Kartik.”
Talking about the film says producer Ronnie Screwvala, “Captain India is not just a story of one of the biggest humanitarian operations ever but also about the indomitable human spirit, one that rises above failure despite the odds. Hansal Mehta is one of the finest filmmakers of our time and has always beautifully captured the true essence of humane stories. Kartik Aaryan’s fans are surely in for a treat as he steps into all-new territory with ‘Captain India’.”
The writer and producer Harman Baweja say, Captain India, “will resonate with all Indians.” Kartik has a series of interesting movie combinations in front of him, including Bhool Bhulaiya 2, Dhamaka for Netflix, and an untitled film for Sameer Vidwans.
