Ajay Devgn to star in Bhuj - Parineeti, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi joins crewBollywood powerhouse Ajay Devgn is all set to play Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik in an upcoming film titled ‘Bhuj: The Pride of India’.

Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to share the news.

He wrote, “Ajay Devgn in #BhujThePrideOfIndia… Will essay the role of Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik, in charge of Bhuj airport during the 1971 Indo-Pak war… Directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya… Produced by Ginny Khanuja, Vajir Singh, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Abhishek Dudhaiya.”

The film will be helmed by Abhishek Dudhaiya and will be based on real life events during Indo-Pak war of 1971.

Bhushan Kumar, who is bankrolling the upcoming film, also took to his Twitter handle to welcome Ajay aboard.

Reportedly, Karnik was in-charge of the Bhuj airbase during the 1971 war, which remained operational despite of facing heavy bombing from Pakistan. He was accompanied by 50 air force and 60 defence security personnel at the airbase.

Karnik and his team reconstructed the destroyed Indian Air Force airstrip at Bhuj, Gujarat with the help of local women. The team convinced around 300 women from a nearby village to help them rebuild the airstrip so that a flight carrying Indian Army officers could land safely.
