Makers of The Ghazi Attack, India’s first underwater war-at-sea film had been shot majorly on a set designed like a Submarine. The set was modelled on INS Karanj as a reference point. The film deals with the heroics of an executive naval officer of the Indian Submarine, S-21, which destroyed the Pakistani submarine, PNS Ghazi when it ventured into Indian waters to destroy INS Vikrant and take control of the Visakhapatnam port on the eastern coast of India in 1971.The size of the submarine was modified to let lead star Rana Duggubati in with his broad shoulders. The trailer of The Ghazi Attack has a lot of action expected from a war film.
Directed by Sankalp Reddy, the film stars Daggubati, Taapsee Pannu, Kay Kay Menon and Rahul Singh among others. It releases on February 17.
