Karan Johar To Produce War-Hero Epic For Every Independence Day

 After the critical and  mass success of  two war-hero bio-pics Gunjan Saxena in 2020 and Shershaah in 2021,which were both released during the Independence Day weekend,producer Karan  Johar is  now  on to his third bio-pic on freedom  fighter  Usha Mehta.

 This bio-pic too  will be  released for Independence Day 2022.

Sources very close  to  Karan  Johar say Karan intends to make his  Independence Day  films a regular occurrence.

 “The idea  now is to  produce a film about an  unsung national hero every year. It started  as  a one-off thing when  Karan Johar  produced Gunjan Saxena The Kargil  Girl about   the Indian  first airforce pilot. Now this year in 2021 Shershaah about  Paramvir Chakra winner Vikram Batra has  also been well received.Karan is  now  on to his third film on a  national hero Usha Mehta which will be directed  by Kannan Iyer who directed the eerie Ek Tthi Dayan  in 2013.  The hunt is  on to gather  the names and  achievements  of  other soldiers, war heroes and  freedom fighters,” informs a source.

Quite  a  change of  rhythm for  producer Karan  Johar, and also a departure from bio-pics  about gangsters and other anti-social elements that have lately emerged from  Bollywood.
