Ishaan Khatter, who is all set to be seen in Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur’s Pippa, now wraps the film on a high note. The actor commemorates the wrap by unveiling three stills that convey the breadth of his role as the young Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta, who was instrumental to the victory in the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971.
One still shows the proud young gun in Army uniform looking earnest and duty-bound and in the other two, he pulls off the classic gentleman’s look while dancing in high spirits. Known for his dance moves, Khatter is captured grooving to a foot-tapping dance number composed by maestro A R Rahman and sung by Arijit Singh. The song is poised to attract excitement for the reunion of the Oscar-winning music composer and the star of hit songs.
Pippa is based on ‘The Burning Chaffees’ written by Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta. Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, the first-of-its-kind war drama enlivens a glorious chapter in Indian history.
Khatter underwent a massive body transformation and prep that included combat training and handling weapons to be able to walk in the shoes of an army officer on screen. The actor was also on a rigorous (6-day) military training program.
Produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films and directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Pippa stars Ishaan Khatter, Mrunal Thakur, Priyanshu Painyuli and Soni Razdan. The war drama will hit the theatres on the 9th of December 2022.
