According to actor Sara Ali Khan, playing a freedom fighter in the upcoming movie ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ was both difficult and fascinating. The thriller-drama is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharmatic Entertainment and directed by Kannan Iyer. ”
‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ is based on actual events and depicts the adventurous journey of a college student in Bombay who later becomes a freedom fighter against the backdrop of the 1942 Quit India Movement.
The movie is based on the life of freedom fighter Usha Mehta, who was crucial in using radio to spread news throughout the nation during the Quit India Movement. Sara claimed that the Amazon Original, which she referred to as a story of bravery, tested her as an actor.
“Since we don’t know her, we refer to her in our movie as a ‘gumnaam nayak,’ an unknown fighter.” “She gave so much of herself and you have no idea who she is, which, in my opinion, is a great act of bravery, fortitude, and sacrifice.”
“All of this is common in either the present or any time.” Thus, it was undoubtedly difficult and exhilarating as well,” the 27-year-old actor, renowned for roles in Atrangi Re and Kedarnath, told PTI.
Sara, who graduated from Columbia University with a degree in political science and history, said the movie made her aware of the underappreciated freedom fighter.
In more than 240 nations and territories throughout the world, ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ will make its debut on Prime Video. The release date has not yet been declared by the makers.
