While the film revolves around the 1971 Indo-Pak War, Ajay will be seen essaying the role of Indian Air Force Officer Vijay Karnik.
The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Hate Story 4 actor Ihana Dhillon, singer-actor Ammy Virk and South Indian actor Pranitha Subhash. Pranitha, who has starred in a number of movies such as Porki, Saguni and Dynamite, Bhuj: The Pride of India will also mark her Bollywood debut.
Bhuj: The Pride Of India tells one of the many stories of bravery, selflessness and commitment, shown by ordinary people apart from the armed forces during the 1971 Indo-Pak War.
The period drama looks back into the journey of 300 women from Madhapar village of Gujarat’s Kutch district, who played a pivotal role in helping India win the war. The women came together to rebuild and repair the only runway in Bhuj, which was crucial for the war.
Karnik was in-charge of the Bhuj airbase during the war, which remained operational despite facing heavy bombing from Pakistan. He was accompanied by 50 air force and 60 defence security corps personnel at the airbase.
