Shahid Kapoor to play a paratrooper in Bull

The actor will play Brigadier Farukh Bulsara, who led Operation Cactus in the Maldives in 1988

Published: 21st October 2021

Shahid Kapoor will star in an upcoming action-drama titled Bull. The film is inspired by real events in the 1980s. It will be directed by first-timer Aditya Nimbalkar.

"Bull is a full-blown action film inspired by real events from the life of Brigadier Bulsara," Shahid shared. "It is a privilege to play a paratrooper who leads his boys through a historic and selfless mission that has now become iconic for its precision and bravado. The opportunity to play a paratrooper is exhilarating and truly an honour."

Brigadier Farukh Bulsara led Indian paratroopers during Operation Cactus in the Maldives in 1988. India had helped defeat a coup in the island nation.

Principal photography for Bull is slated to begin in 2022. The film is co-produced by Bhushan Kumar, Amar Butala, and Garima Mehta.

"We dedicate this film to men in uniforms and our soldiers who brave through unimaginable turmoil to guard this great nation's sovereignty. Shahid will be seen in an exciting avatar. This is also our first association with T- Series and I look forward to it," Amar Butala, Partner, Guilty By Association, said.
