Vidyut Jammwal's debut production with National award-winning director!

Monday, July 19, 2021 • Hindi Comments

Bollywood star Vidyut Jammwal is best known for his action film franchise “Commando”. Today, Vidyut announced his debuting as a producer through Twitter. His Action Hero Film outfit is teaming with Reliance Entertainment and T-Series for the debut project "IB 71", an espionage thriller.

Sankalp Reddy, who debuted with National film award-winning “The Ghazi Attack” that was set during the 1971 India - Pakistan war, will direct this espionage thriller. IB 71 will also be based on India's 1971 war history.

Set before the Indo-Pakistani war, Jammwal will play an intelligence officer in a story about how Indian intelligence agencies outwitted the Pakistani establishment and gave the Indian armed forces the required advantage they needed to face a two-front war.

Aditya Shastri wrote the story and the screenplay comes from Storyhouse Films. “IB 71” is co-produced by Abbas Sayyed and will commence production at the end of 2021. We can expect this project to be a multilingual pan-Indian as the film is about India’s war history. Also, the director’s previous work The Ghazi Attack, also based on the 1971 war was also a multilingual release.

Jammwal commented, “Some of the most interesting episodes in Indian history have inspired IB 71. With this film, Action Hero Films pursues the endeavour to unravel a riveting story envisaged by gifted writers. I have full faith in Sankalp Reddy’s vision as a filmmaker and it is wonderful to be joining hands with Reliance Entertainment, a banner that has been synonymous with quality filmmaking.”
