The filmmaker, J.P 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 flick titled PALTAN. Paltan will mark his long-awaited comeback after 2006’s Umrao Jaan starring Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. It is going to be released on 7th September. To have a quick glimpse to the storyline, you can watch the trailer here.
Paltan, A Movie Based On Indo- China War
It is a war drama, based on the Indo-China War of 1962. Paltan focuses on the hard-hitting truth of India’s relations with China, and how it is important to acknowledge that China, an enormous power in world politics, poses to be a huge threat to India. A few days ago, the first look of the film released, which showed a band of soldiers walking on an uneven path. The poster was captioned, Brother to my right, brother to my left. Together we stand, together we fight. PALTAN featuring Sonu Sood, Arjun Rampal, Harshvardhan Rane, Luv Sinha, Siddhant Kapoor, Gurmeet Choudhary and Jackie Shroff. However, the names of female cast aren’t known yet. However, Esha Gupta and Monica Gill are likely to be seen in this upcoming flick
Esha Gupta Likely To Be Seen In This Upcoming Flick Paltan
Esha Gupta, having been part of prominent action films in her career including Baadshaho, Commando 2 and Chakravyuh, is set to feature in yet another action flick, Paltan. If sources are to be believed, the makers have signed Esha to be part of his ambitious project and she has been paired opposite Arjun Rampal who portrays a Lieutenant Colonel from 2 grenadiers. Though the talented actress plays a love interest to Arjun’s character in the movie, it’s one of the important characters. She will be soon joining the cast and crew of the war drama.
Esha says “A lot of people see me in the 60’s era. And knowing JP Sir’s love for the country and passion for cinema shows in his film, I feel honored to be a part of his film”. Esha also reveals that “I did Chakravyuh with Arjun, we had a great rapport. And now I’m playing the role of Arjun’s wife in Paltan. I’m looking forward to going join the team soon.”
Firangi Actress Monica Gill Also Joins JP Dutta’s Paltan
After impressing as an Oxford-returned princess in Kapil Sharma’s period-comedy Firangi, actress Monica Gill has joined the cast of J.P. Dutta’s highly-anticipated war film Paltan. The report added that although Monica has been cast as Harshvardhan’s love interest in the film, her character plays a prominent role in the story.
Abhishek Bachchan Dropped Out The Project At Last Moment
The 42-year-old actor, Abhishek Bachchan, who made his Bollywood debut with J.P. Dutta’s film ‘Refugee’ in 2000, was supposed to reunite in his another upcoming flick PALTAN, along with ‘Border’ actors Jackie Shroff and Suniel Shetty. But interestingly, he dropped out of the project a day before the cast and crew left for Ladakh. He is no longer part of Paltan for personal reasons best known to him. J.P Dutta is looking for another actor to replace him.
Over to you
The long-awaited JP Dutta’s upcoming flick, Paltan, is going to be as interesting as his other war-based films. Moreover, the movie is featuring many very well known actors. It is to be released in summer 2018 and I am so excited to watch a movie of one of the finest filmmakers.
