Kartik Aaryan's first look from Hansal Mehta's directorial 'Captain India' was revealed over the weekend and the actor is seen dressed as a pilot with his face hidden behind the captain's cap. The movie is inspired by one of India's successful rescue missions from a war-torn country. The film is produced by RSVP and Baweja Studios, and will reportedly revisit “one of the most successful rescue operations in Indian history.”
Kartik said in a statement, “Captain India is inspiring and thrilling in equal measure and it gives me great pride and honour to be a part of such a historic chapter of our country. I have immense respect for Hansal Sir’s body of work and this was the perfect opportunity to collaborate with him.” Director 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.”
Writer and producer Harman Baweja said the movie “will resonate with every Indian.” Kartik has an interesting line up of movies ahead, including 'Bhool Bhulaiya 2', Netflix's 'Dhamaka', and an untitled film to be directed by Sameer Vidwans.
