Pippa, starring Ishaan Khatter, Mrunal Thakur and Priyanshu Painyuli, was announced a long ago, but filming has yet to begin. According to a recent story in Mid-Day, Pippa’s crew is now preparing to begin filming for the war drama if weather permits. The film, which is based on the 1971 India-Pakistan conflict, will feature some strong action scenes, making it a spectacular production.
While there are too many constraints for Pippa to be shot, the team has recently been advised that the film may go into production in September.
A source revealed to the portal, “The film, set against the backdrop of the 1971 India-Pakistan war, will require multiple levels of prep. The actors’ reading sessions will begin by mid-August.”

The cast will also have to start physical prep apart from reading sessions. “They not only have to fully familiarise themselves with the Battle of Garibpur that forms the crux of the story, but also have to physically prep from the first week of August to do justice to the combat and war sequences on camera,” the source added.
Pippa is directed by Raja Krishna Menon and is based on the book The Burning Chaffees by Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta. The film’s first schedule is expected to start shooting in Mumbai in September.
