Ajay Devgn unveiled the trailer of his upcoming film, Bhuj: The Pride of India today. Sharing the video on social media, he wrote, “When bravery becomes your armour, every step leads you to victory! Experience the untold story of the greatest battle ever fought, #BhujThePrideOfIndia.”
The trailer of Bhuj: The Pride of India is inspired by the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war where the airstrip at Bhuj was destroyed in combat and the brave officer, Vikram Karnik essayed by Ajay Devgn built the Bhuj airport along with 300 women from a nearby village; a move that helped India win the war. Sonakshi Sinha essays the role of Sunderben Jetha – a social worker who risked everything to help armed forces in this critical time. Sanjay Dutt brings to life the role of Ranchordas Pagi whose efforts are said to have saved thousands of lives.
At the end, Ajay is seen rising from the wreckage and declaring, “Mere marne ka maatam mat karna, maine khud yeh shahdat chuni hai. Main jeeta hoon marne ke liye, mera naam hai sipahi (Don’t mourn my death, I have chosen martyrdom myself. I live to die, I am a soldier).”
