Actor Ajay Devgn shares, “Bhuj: The Pride of India is inspired by episodes and anecdotes around a war that India fought and won. The participation of our Air Force and real people of Bhuj, both of whom contributed to making this victory possible is something every Indian should be aware of. It’s a contemporary war-time story that needs to be celebrated. India’s never-say-die spirit was clearly visible through the events that led to our victory. It’s a Jai Hind moment!”
