‘Navy Day’: Bhushan Kumar, Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar join hands for a film on Karachi Harbour 1971 incident
It looks like biopics and remakes on historic events are here to stay for a long time in Bollywood. The ace producers of Bollywood, Bhushan Kumar, Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Swati Iyer have joined hands for a film on Indian Navy, which is set against the backdrop of 1971’s Karachi Harbour incident. While the makers are yet to announce the star cast, the film is set to hit the floors next year.
The navy drama will be helmed by Razneesh Ghai, who has directed quite a few ad films and has been associated with T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment. Talking about the film, Bhushan Kumar said in a statement, “The operation was one of the most successful in modern naval history after World War II. Our Navy suffered no losses and caused heavy casualties on the enemy side.”
Extremely delighted to announce “Navy Day”, our next venture celebrating the Greatest Naval Operation by the @indiannavy – the bombing of Karachi Harbour in 1971.

Apparently, the makers are planning to make an extravagant film which will be focused on the Indian Army and the Air Force during Operation Trident.
