For their third project together, Akshay Kumar and Aanand L Rai are going to collaborate. The team has revealed their next project, Gorkha, after wrapping off Raksha Bandhan a few days ago.
Major General Ian Cardozo will be played by Akshay Kumar in the film. Cardozo is a legendary officer in the Indian army’s Gorkha regiment. He was also the Indian Army’s first war-disabled officer to command a battalion and brigade. Cardozo stepped on a landmine in the closing days of the Indo-Pak conflict in 1971, and when he knew he couldn’t be saved, he amputated his own leg. Later, he was operated on by a Pakistani army doctor who had been captured as a prisoner of war.
Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan will helm the film, which will star Akshay Kumar. His film Lahore, which has received international praise, is one of his most well-known works. For the film Bahattar Hoorain, he won the National Film Award for Best Director in 2021.
Aanand L Rai will produce the film, which will go on floors next year.
