Andhadhun director Sriram Raghavan is set to start working on a web series based on the Kandahar hijacking by Pakistani terrorist group Harkat-ul-Mujahideen in 1999.
The director was supposed to start working for Ekkis with Varun Dhawan in 2020. However, the pandemic has ruined the plan and now the director has decided to move to another project.
Talking about the series, it narrates the story of the hijacking of the Indian Airlines Flight AC-814 that forced India to release three Islamist terrorists in return of the safety of 176 passengers and crew of the flight.
The makers are presently doing the research for the project. According to the reports, the project will go on floors next year.
As per the reports, the web series will show a detailed account of the hostage crisis that kept India on its foot for seven nights.
