The actor-producer Nikhil Dwivedi announced his next home production film “1971” on the occasion of Republic Day. The film is based around the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971 and Bangladesh’s liberation.
Dwivedi, who won praise for his performance in “Scam 1992” directed by Hansal Mehta, has previously produced movies such as “Veere Di Wedding” and “Dabangg 3.” Dwivedi said the goal behind “1971” was to present the audience with a “real war movie.”We plan to show the event as it is, right from a textbook by a historian to a celluloid. My attempt, without any jingoism, would be to make it as real and authentic as possible. We want to design it in accordance with international standards,” said Dwivedi in a statement. Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India, and Sam Maneckshaw, who was the Chief of the Army staff during the war, will also focus on the two important and powerful Indians.
‘1971’ will demonstrate that they both worked in complete sync to lead India to one of the post-modern world’s most emphatic victories. It was as much a political and diplomatic war as the armed forces fought it,’ added Dwivedi. The creators are currently finalising the cast for the movie, post that will hit the floors with the war drama.
