Sony Pictures International Productions will be producing Mega Prince Varun Tej's 13th film in association with Renaissance Pictures. The movie is set to go on floors in November 2022.

Fresh from the success of his first Telugu- Hindi Bilingual, `Major', Sony Pictures International Productions is set to celebrate the might of India once more with Mega Prince Varun Tej starrer action drama inspired by India's Air Force.

He is known for his versatile roles and script selection in Telugu Cinema. He will be making his debut in the Hindi Film Industry with this film. He rose to fame with Kanche (2015) directed by Krish which earned a lot of recognition.

Inspired by true events, this untitled film is a patriotic, edge-of-the-seat entertainer, and will showcase the indomitable spirits of our heroes on the frontlines and the challenges they face guarding our skies.




"I am honored to have received the opportunity to play the role of an Indian Air Force Officer and celebrate their valor on the big screen. Partnering with global giant Sony Pictures International Productions, Sandeep Mudda, and director Shakti Pratap Singh, we strive to make a film that we hope will be a perfect tribute to the Indian Air Force. The script for this film provides a challenge to break out of my previous roles. As an (IAF)officer, my character has layers that will be interesting for me to showcase in this film. I will be undergoing immense training and I am excited to see how the audiences react to this one," Varun Tej said.

Produced by Sony Pictures International Productions and Rennaisance Pictures, the film will be directed by Shakti Pratap Singh – a seasoned ad-film maker, cinematographer, and VFX aficionado who will also be seen marking his directorial debut with this film. The movie will be shot in Telugu and Hindi simultaneously and is expected to go on floors by the end of this year and will have a global release in 2023.

Sony Pictures International Productions, co-headed by Shebnem Askin and Michael Rifkin, is the local-language production arm of Sony Pictures Entertainment's Motion Picture Group that releases over 30 films annually across 12 territories around the world.
