New Delhi: Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri had recently grabbed the attention of the masses with a hint of his upcoming film.
Now, while putting an end to all the wait of the fans, the filmmaker is finally here with the title of his upcoming, ‘The Vaccine War’. The realistic filmmaker has apparently booked August 15, 2023 for the film’s global release.
He also dropped the poster of the film, that says a lot about the theme— Indian bio-scientists and indigenous vaccine. The film is all set to go on the floors soon this month.
Vivek said in a statement, “When ‘The Kashmir Files’ was postponed during COVID lockdown, I started researching on it. Then we started researching with the scientists of ICMR & NIV who made our own vaccine possible. Their story of struggle and sacrifice was overwhelming and while researching we understood how these scientists fought a war waged against India not just by foreign agencies but even our own people.”
“Yet, we won against superpowers by making fastest, cheapest and safest vaccine. I thought this story must be told so that every Indian can feel proud of their country.This will be India’s first pure science film about a bio-war we had no idea about,” he added.
Producer Pallavi Joshi shared, “This film celebrates the triumph of our excellent bio scientists. The vaccine war is our tribute to their sacrifice, dedication, and hard work.”
The makers have not announced the cast yet. It will be interesting to see who will be a perfect fit to justify the war of the vaccine and bring the efforts made by our scientists, to the big screen!
The film will be released in 10 plus languages including Hindi, English, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Gujrati, Marathi, and Bengali.
