We are working on Gorkha and we will keep working on it till the time it is perfect to go on floors. Raksha Bandhan happened so quickly, but then there are some films which take time because if the way in which we want to make them.”

He further added: “We will only make the film when we feel that we are 100 percent right with the subject and we have cracked it well. We are finding the right bound script and the process is on as we speak. That’s the process we follow for all our films.”

Gorkha is a biopic of 1971 Indo-Pak war hero Major General Ian Cardozo. The movie is directed by Sanjay Chauhan and bankrolled by Aanand L Rai under Colour Yellow Productions.

Major General Ian Cardozo said, “I feel honoured for this story to be told on the 50th anniversary of the 1971 war. It commemorates the courage and sacrifice of the armed forces of India. I look forward to working with Aanand and Akshay as they bring this to life. This story reflects the values and spirit of every officer of the Indian Army.”
