Ladakh Especially Opened For Paltan Movie Shoot


The city of Ladakh opened even in harsh December especially for the shoot of J P Dutta’s upcoming Paltan.

The upcoming war drama has been shot in adverse conditions owing to the need for authentic conditions required by director J P Dutta.

Ladakh city which is shut down during the harsh winters of December opened up only for the shoot of the film. Even the local members there became a part of the crew helping them shoot in the extreme conditions. It was so difficult to a level that the temperature dropped to -26 degrees but none of them gave up not the actors and nor the crew.

A few days back, when the trailer of the movie was launched it gave us cold shivers taking us back to the battlefield.

Paltan is all set to complete India’s biggest war trilogy after winning hearts of the audience with Border and LOC Kargil. While the earlier two films showcased India’s wars with Pakistan, J P Dutta’s upcoming war film Paltan showcases the lesser known battle at Nathula pass.

The trailer depicts the struggles of Indian army after the much-publicised defeat at the 1962 Indo-China war and the determination to protect our motherland by the battalion at Nathula Pass.

Based on true events, Paltan highlights the spirit of armed forces “We before I”.

Zee Studios and J P Dutta Films’ upcoming war drama Paltan starring an ensemble cast of Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Choudhary, Harshvardhan Rane and Siddhant Kapoor amongst others, Paltan will complete India’s biggest war trilogy.

Based on the Nathu La military clashes of 1967 which took place along the Sikkim border, Paltan showcases an untold story of the Indian forces facing off in an intense battle to ward off a Chinese infiltration.

Renowned filmmaker J P Dutta returns to direction after 12 years with Paltan. The national-award-winning director had earlier treated the audience with war films like Border, LOC Kargil, and Refugee among others.

With power-packed performances, the film promises to tell the riveting, untold story of the bravest of Indian soldiers who fought with their brothers next to them till the end.

Presented by Zee Studios and produced by J P Dutta Films, ‘Paltan’ is directed by J. P. Dutta and is slated to release on 7th September.
