Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri recently announced his next film titled The Vaccine War. Talking about how the film Agnihotri said, "When The Kashmir Files (2022) was postponed during COVID lockdown, I started researching on it. Then we started researching with the scientists of ICMR & NIV who made our own vaccine possible. Their story of struggle and sacrifice was overwhelming and while researching we understood how these scientists fought a war waged against India not just by foreign agencies but even our own people".
The film in his opinion is India's first science film about a bio-war, "Yet, we won against superpowers by making the fastest, cheapest and safest vaccine. I thought this story must be told so that every Indian can feel proud of their country. This will be India's first pure science film about a bio-war we had no idea about".
The shooting of the film will begin soon. It will be released several languages including Hindi, English, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, and Bengali. Produced by Pallavi Joshi of I Am Buddha productions, The Vaccine War will tentatively release on August 15, 2023. The cast of the film is yet to be announced.
