Ishaan Khatter recently shared the teaser of his next Pippa, which is based on the India-Pakistan war of 1971. Khatter will play the role of Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta, a veteran who was part of the 45th Cavalry tank squadron. Mrunal Thakur is playing his sister, who also fought in the war. Soni Razdan is playing their mother.
The teaser begins with Prime Minister Indira Gandhi announcing the India-Pakistan war and goes on to show Khatter as Balram, commanding his troops. There are some intense war scenes as well as archival footage from the war in the teaser.
On Instagram, Khatter shared the teaser with the caption, "PIPPA in cinemas December 2nd, 2022.
"On the momentous occasion of our country's Independence Day – presenting a glimpse from a film we've collectively put our heart, gut and soul into.
"May our soil, our people and our culture be blessed always. It's been an honour to represent the valour and bravery of our defence forces 🇮🇳
"More to come."
The movie's title refers to the Russian amphibious war tank PT-76, which was popularly known as Pippa.
