Starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Pallavi Sharda, Hawaizaada is beautiful story inspired from real life incidents. Directed by Vibhu Puri, this film talks about chasing your dreams and never giving up.
The period film is a biopic of scientific Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, who is believed to have constructed and flown India’s first unmanned airplane in 1985, eight years before the Wright brothers.
The film is set in Mumbai during the 1880s, so a great effort to capture the atmosphere of that time has been made. Director Vibhu Puri said, “We have done extensive research over the last two years to get the details right. Ayushmann has also learnt Marathi to get the nuances of his character right. As far as the plane is concerned, we got hold of the remains of the original aircraft, Marutsakha, which took flight in 1895. We then hired special artistes to create different looking but nature inspired aircrafts that we could use for the shoot.”
