Prime Video unveils first look of Sara Ali Khan's Ae Watan Mere Watan

New Delhi/UNI: Ahead of India’s 74th Republic Day celebrations, Prime Video on Monday launched the first-look of the upcoming original movie, Ae Watan Mere Watan, an inspiring tribute to the fearless heroes of India’s struggle for freedom.

A Dharmatic Entertainment Production, the movie is being produced by Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta, with Somen Mishra serving as the co-producer.

Directed by Kannan Iyer and written jointly by Darab Farooqui and Kannan Iyer, the film is a thriller-drama inspired by true events and will see Sara Ali Khan play the character of a valiant freedom fighter.

The just-launched, first-look video transports us to a bygone era where we see a tense, yet extremely focused, young girl expertly assembling a radio-like device in a dimly lit room. The camera gradually reveals that the young girl is none other than Sara in a never-seen-before, non-glamorous avatar.

As she begins to speak on the radio, her voice is imbued with courage and determination; she shares the message of independence with the entire nation via her underground radio station, until she is interrupted by the incessant banging at the door.

A thriller-drama inspired by true events, Ae Watan Mere Watan, follows the intrepid journey of a college girl in Bombay who goes on to become a freedom fighter. This fictional tale is set against the backdrop of the Quit India Movement in 1942. It is a story about the courage, patriotism, sacrifice and resourcefulness of the youth of the nation.

"Dharmatic Entertainment is glad to be teaming up with Prime Video, yet again, to create a masterpiece- Ae Watan Mere Watan," said Karan Johar, Dharmatic Entertainment.

Sara shared her excitement on playing this role in Ae Watan Mere Watan.

She said, "I am so excited and honoured that Prime Video and Dharmatic Entertainment have given me the opportunity to be a part of a film that I truly believe deserves to be told.

"As an actor, and more importantly as an Indian I am proud to be able to portray a character that echoes bravery, strength and courage."
