Ishaan Khatter, who is all set to be seen in Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur’s Pippa, has finished his shooting schedules for the film. In Pippa, he plays the role of the young Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta, who
was instrumental to the victory in the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971.
Pippa is based on The Burning Chaffees, written by Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta. Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, the first-of-its-kind war drama enlivens a glorious chapter in Indian history. Khatter underwent a massive body transformation and prep that included combat training and handling weapons to be able to walk in the shoes of an army officer on screen. The actor was also on a rigorous (6-day) military training program.
The actor commemorates the wrap by unveiling three stills that showcase his character!
Khatter is known for his killer dance moves, and in two of the stills, you can see him grooving to a foot-tapping dance number. We have learned that it was composed by maestro A. R. Rahman and sung by Arijit Singh.
Produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films and directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Pippa stars Ishaan Khatter, Mrunal Thakur, Priyanshu Painyuli, and Soni Razdan. The war drama will hit the theatres on the 9th of December 2022.
