Veteran filmmaker JP Dutta, who gave the film industry some of the finest war dramas of all time, including the National award winning ‘Border’, is back with a bang as he presents his ambitious next titled ‘Paltan’.
While ‘Border’ went on to achieve several milestones and was even screened to commemorate India’s 70th Independence Day, the director- producer now hopes to push the envelope and present audiences with another chapter from Indian history.
Though the makers remain tight-lipped about the details, ‘Paltan’ will boast of an exciting ensemble starcast and is even rumored to have actual army jawans star in the film, much like his previous cinematic offerings.
The casting of Dutta’s larger than life drama is underway and will be announced soon.
Says JP Dutta, “It’s time to tell a new story, to tell another part of history of our country and salute more real life heroes! I present ‘Paltan’. A film and a subject very close to my heart and I’m extremely excited about it!”
Produced by JP Films and directed by JP Dutta, ‘Paltan’ which goes on floors later this year, is scheduled for a summer 2018 release.
