Book on surgical strikes to be adapted for film

Oddball Motion Pictures has acquired the rights to make a film based on Nitin A Gokhale's book

Published: 25th January 2018

Nitin A Gokhale's book Securing India the Modi Way: Pathankot, Surgical Strikes and More is being adapted into a film. Oddball Motion Pictures has acquired the rights to make the film on the book about India's surgical strike on terrorist hubs in Pakistan.

Producer Nitin Upadhyaya was delighted to announce the development on the eve of the Republic Day. He says they are "committed to providing a gritty and realistic account of the events that were set in motion right after the grim attacks in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, in September 2016."

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, a former Union defence minister, granted his support to Upadhyaya and Gokhale for the making of the film. "I am happy to see Nitin Gokhale's book being adapted for a feature film by Oddball Motion Pictures. This will make many more people aware of the important steps, including proactive surgical strikes taken by the government to secure the country. I wish the filmamkers great success," Parrikar said in a statement.

Upadhyaya says, "While most films about the Indian Army have about blood and gore, action and thrills alone, our film will depict the planning and decision-making."
