After several delays Ishaan Khatter and Mrunal Thakur starrer Pippa finally released on the streaming platform. The film is based on the life of the then Captain Balram Singh Mehta of the 45 Cavalry tank regiment, who fought the Battle of Garibpur in East Pakistan in 1971.
Speaking about the delay of the film, Thakur said, "There are a few films which don't require so much attention because they are simple. In Pippa there is a lot of work, VFX and the team shot at a number of locations. I was part of the first schedule but for the second and third schedule it was a very tough shoot," she said.
"The release of the film is not in my hands, but I am doing my best for the promotion of the film because I believed in the film when I signed it," Thakur added.
"Also, I feel Pippa is coming at the right time. I want to see a film like this on Diwali with my family."
The actress has been doing films in various languages, saying, "I love speaking different languages and it is never that I get more love from the audience of one particular language. It is always about the story. Also as an actor I don't want language to be my barrier. So there are no north and south films for me. I believe in the stories."
The film, directed by Raja Menon, also stars Priyanshu Painyuli in a prominent role. Produced by RSVP Films and Roy Kapur Films, Pippa released on November 10 on Amazon Prime Video.
