Following Atrangi Re and Raksha Bandhan, Akshay Kumar Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions and Cape of Good Films team up once more. They will collaborate on the biopic Gorkha, based on the life of Major General Ian Cardozo, a legendary soldier from Gorkha, the Gorkha regiment belonging to the Indian Army (5th Gorkha Rifles). It will be directed by the national award-winning Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan.
As we begin the 75th anniversary of Independence and the film’s producers are thrilled to present this tale of sacrifice and courage to the screen. Akshay will play the role of the famous war hero who fought in the conflicts in 1962, 1965, and, most importantly, in the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971. Since this film features a war icon, the actor chose to make the film himself.
Production Manager Aanand L Rai says, “We are honored to tell the tale of the legendary war hero Major General Ian Cardozo whose name goes into the history books for his courage and bravery during the 1971 Indo-Pakistan War. I am also very excited to collaborate with Akshay sir on a third occasion.
The producer Himanshu Sharma adds, “We would like to honor General Ian Cardozo in this film that will be a source of inspiration for many. I am looking forward to this extraordinary adventure.”
Major General Ian Cardozo, AVSM SM, says, “I feel honored for this story to be shared at the anniversary 50 years ago of 1971’s war. This commemorates the courage and sacrifices of the military of India. I am looking for the opportunity to work alongside Anand & Akshay as they make this a reality. This story is a reflection of the values and character of every officer in the Indian Army.”
The film is produced through Akshay Kumar and Colour Yellow Productions in association with Cape of Good Films; Gorkha is directed by Aanand L Rai and Himanshu Sharma and was directed by Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan.
