Kartik Aaryan is playing the lead in Hansal Mehta's upcoming film Captain India, in which he will play a pilot. RSVP and Baweja Studios are producing the film, which will reportedly relive "one of the most successful rescue operations in Indian history."
Kartik Aaryan shared his first look from Captain India, in which he is seen dressed as a pilot with his face covered under the captain's cap. The film is based on one of India's successful rescue flights from a war-torn country, with Kartik playing the pilot who leads the operation and portrays exceptional bravery and daring.
“Captain India is inspiring and thrilling in equal measure, and it provides me great joy and honour to be a part of such a historic chapter of our country,” Kartik said in a statement. I have a huge amount of admiration for Hansal Sir's body of work, and this was the perfect chance to work with him.”
“Captain India is based on true incidents, which will revisit a period in history where a man goes beyond his own pain and suffering to save thousands,” Hansal Mehta said. I'm excited to work on the project with Ronnie Screwvala and Harman Baweja, and I'm looking forward to work with Kartik.”
Other than this, Kartik Aaryan has a number of upcoming films, including Bhool Bhulaiyya 2 and Dhamaka.
