The Ghazi Attack is inspired from true events, a classified mission conducted by the Indian Navy against their Pakistani counterparts in 1971 that not many people know about. It is one of the important events in Indian history. And, Rana Daggubati, who plays the pivotal role of a Lieutenant Commander Arjun Varma in the film who is said to have remained underwater for 18 days during the war, has written a letter to the president of India for acknowledging the Indian Armed Forces.
During the production of the film, Rana met some real navy officers who were on-board. The actor was extremely moved by hearing about their challenging experiences and decided to write a letter to the President for acknowledging the Indian Armed Forces, as they are the unsung heroes whose immense contribution, the nation must know about.
"As a civilian I did not know about these victorious tales and like me there are many others who did not know much about it, to us it's a letter to acknowledge these heroes and make sure we know more about these unsung heroes and their tales of victory," Rana Daggubati said.
The movie, which is releasing tomorrow, rekindles the mystery of what happened on the night of December 3 and what exactly caused the sinking of the PNS Ghazi attack from the Indian Navy. It is a tribute to the immense contribution of the navy officers and the movie screenings across India is a salute to the brave-hearts who fought valiantly for our nation.
Apart from Rana Daggubati, India's first War-At-Sea film, The Ghazi Attack stars Atul Kulkarni, Kay Kay Menon, Taapsee Panu and late veteran actor Om Puri which is produced by Karan Johar & AA Films Present.
