What better way to mark India’s Republic Day than shooting a song dedicated to our honourable Indian Army? To commemorate the Republic Day (26th January, 2018), the cast and crew of J P Dutta’s PALTAN will be shooting a patriotic song dedicated to soldiers who fight to safeguard the country’s honour.
It’s learnt that the cast and crew including director J P Dutta and actors Sonu Sood, Arjun Rampal, Harshvardhan Rane, Luv Sinha, Siddhant Kapoor, Gurmeet Choudhary and Jackie Shroff will be visiting Chandigarh on 25th January so that they can shoot the song from 26th January onwards. Since the patriotic song features soldiers from the real army, the makers feel privileged to shoot it on the same day.
A source informs, “The team of PALTAN is quite excited to shoot the song since it pays tribute to the Indian Army on the Republic Day. The song brings back the successful lyricist-composer Javed Akhtar and Anu Malik who has previously worked on songs in war dramas including Border and LOC:Kargil. The team of PALTAN will be stationed in Chandigarh for an extensive last schedule.”
“It’s an inspirational song that will remind people of songs like Sandese Aate Hain from Border,” the source adds.
Without divulging more details about the song, Nidhi Dutta says, “The song that we will be shooting is about our country, brave soldiers and their families because behind every soldier guarding the border there is a family which supports them and let them go so that they can protect their countrymen and make other families secure.”
Produced by JP Films and presented by Zee Studios, PALTAN is scheduled for a summer 2018 release.
