This Independence Day weekend we have quite a few interesting films releasing on OTT platforms. After Sidharth Malhotra starter Shershaah’s release on August 12, we now have Ajay Devgn starrer Bhuj: The Pride of India releasing today. Helmed by Abhishek Dudhaiya, Bhuj: The Pride of India is a period war film about the life of IAF Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik (played by Ajay), the then in charge of the Bhuj airport who, along with his team, reconstructed the IAF airbase with the help of 300 women from the local village Madhapar. This helped the nation to win the Indo-Pakistani war of 1971.

Bhuj will release on Disney +Hotstar today evening. Now ahead of the film’s release, Ajay Devgn’s wife Kajol watched the film in a theatre and shared her experience. She even thanked the real-life action heroes for keeping people safe at the risk of their own lives.


Sharing a clip from inside the theatre, Kajol is heard cheering loudly for hubby Ajay Devgn as he appears on the screen. Alongside the clip, Kajol wrote, My theatre experience after soooooooo long! What an awesome high.. reminds us of all the things we take for granted without ever worrying about who is giving us the safety and security of just being normal.. a hats off salute to all those real life action heroes who keep us safe every day of their very unsafe lives(sic).”

Kajol urged her fans to watch the film asap and also shared how proud she is of her husband. “#BhujThePrideOfIndia Out Today on @disneyplushotstarvip at 5:35pm #DisneyPlusHotstarMultiplex  @ajaydevgn# NationalPride # CountryLove  #IndianArmy #WatchItAsap #Bhuj #SoProudOfMyHusband(sic),” she added further.
