In April, Vidyut Jammwal launched his production house, Action Hero Films, with the idea of bringing high-concept stories to the screen. Almost three months on, the actor-producer has zeroed in on the banner’s first film — IB 71. The espionage thriller will be helmed by Sankalp Reddy, whose Ghazi (2017) won the National Award for best feature film in Telugu.
The movie, which sees Jammwal as an Indian Intelligence officer, recounts how the Intelligence Bureau played a crucial role and gave the Indian Army a tactical advantage during one of its wars against Pakistan.
With Ghazi, Reddy had highlighted the mysterious sinking of PNS Ghazi during the 1971 India-Pakistan war.
