T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar has joined hands with producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Swati Iyer to co-produce the film, which is officially titled “Navy Day”. Filming is set to commence in 2020.

Bhushan Kumar, one of the most successful producers in Bollywood, has announced his next production venture, titled Navy Day.  The film will chronicle one of the most audacious attacks by the Indian navy on the Pakistani harbor during the 1971 war.

Navy Day will mount the shooting floor in 2020. Razneesh Ghai, who is one of the most sought-after names in the Indian advertising industry, will make his directorial debut with the film. Bhushan Kumar has joined forces with producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Swati Iyer to co-produce the high-profile project. The same team has previously delivered superhit film Tumhari Sulu (2017).

The Indian Navy attack on the Pakistani harbor during the 1971 war is known as Operation Trident. It is still remembered as one of the most audacious naval attacks the world has ever seen. The attack took place on the night of December 4 and 5, during the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971. India celebrates December 4 every year as Navy Day to commemorate the success of Operation Trident.

Talking about the cast of the film, the makers are expected to begin the casting process only after the script is locked. According to a source, the final draft of the script should be ready by August-September. The team of writers will be meeting and interviewing a lot of people who were a part of the covert operation to get the ins and outs of the operation.

Once the script is locked, casting will begin. Before Navy Day starts rolling in the first half of 2020, the entire cast will be undergoing an exhaustive training session for three-four months. The makers are looking at releasing the movie towards the end of 2020 or in the first quarter of 2021. More details are awaited.
