Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Pippa stars Ishaan and Mrunal alongside Soni Razdan and Priyanshu Painyuli. The one-minute teaser video shows Ishaan as Captain (later Brigadier General) Balram Singh Mehta, a veteran of the 45th Cavalry Tank Squadron, who then fought for Bangladesh.
Filled with heavy emotions and some intense war scenes, Ishaan emerges as a young war hero who leads soldiers to the liberation of what was then East Pakistan. The first glimpse of the warm drama strikes the right chord with dialogues such as ‘Joy Bangla’, the popular battle cry of the liberation war. It also featured a glimpse of Soni and Mrunal who will be seen as Ishaan’s mother and sibling respectively.
Ishaan shared the teaser on Instagram, writing: “PIPPA in cinemas December 2, 2022. On the occasion of our country’s Independence Day – with a glimpse of a film that we collectively put our hearts, guts and souls into. May our soil, our people and our culture will always be blessed. It was an honor to represent the courage and courage of our armed forces. More to come.”
