Rana Shares ” The film has some underwater action sequences that we were doing for the first time. These stunts were shot over 12 days with all necessary precautions. While one part was shot in an Olympic size swimming pool , a of the underwater stunts were shot in the oceans off the coast of vizag. It was not so simple because we didn’t know what we would encounter. We had to look out for sudden water currents and for pieces of metal. To shoot such scenes one has to be trained specially. I am a certified deep sea diver with a professional diving license, but it has been a while since I did my last dive. had to do a few rehearsal rounds before i started the shoot.”
The film is said to be based on the true events of a mysterious sinking of PNS Ghazi during the Indo-Pak 1971 war.
Karan Johar & AA Films Present, India’s first War-At-Sea film, THE GHAZI ATTACK, slated to release on 17th February 2017.
