Zee5 Global, as we told has an incredible library and many exciting films and series planned for 2021 and the future! One of those, which will begin streaming on July 9th, is State of Siege: Temple Attack, directed by Ken Ghosh and starring Akshaye Khanna.
It originally aired as a series that has 2 hit seasons. State of Siege: 26/11. It was one of the first web series that was released after the pandemic hit the entire world, which was a tribute to our brave Indian soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country. It also went on to become one of the most talked about shows. Earlier this year, the platform announced a film as a tribute to our soldiers, saluting the brave Indian spirit and continuing the legacy of the Siege series. Titled State of Siege: Temple Attack, this Zee5 Global original film, is inspired by true events.
The makers of the film released the teaser of the film which reminds us of the NSG heroes who fought for us. The NSG has always showcased their will and determination to save the lives of innocent people and successfully capture/kill the terrorists. This film will take you through their journey and all the behind the scenes action of a dreadful temple attack.
Director Ken Ghosh said, “State of Siege: Temple Attack is not just a film, it is a tribute to the NSG commandos of India who are always ready to risk their lives to protect us. As a son of a naval officer, I have grown up in awe of our armed forces. In State of Siege: Temple Attack, we have tried our best to give a fitting tribute to our heroes and I cannot wait for the release of the film on ZEE5.”
