Drishyam Films And Applause Entertainment Confirms Iftikhar, Based On Major Mohit Sharma

Ravi Sharma | January, 22 2021

Two of the biggest production houses, Drishyam Films and Applause Entertainment have joined forces for a movie based on the life of Ashok Chakra awardee Major Mohit Sharma.

The drama is titled "Iftikhar, the film is an adaptation of the first chapter of Shiv Aroor and Rahul Singh’s book, India’s Most Fearless 2: More Military Stories of Unimaginable Courage and Sacrifice", published by Penguin Random House India.

The official handle of Drishyam Films dropped the deeds on the project. It tweeted, “@ApplauseSocial and @DrishyamFilms collaborate on IFTIKHAR. A prestige movie project that will tell the valiant story of Ashok Chakra awardee Major Mohit Sharma, who fearlessly infiltrated Hizbul Mujahideen under the alias of Iftikhar Bhatt. @DrishyamFilms @nairsameer @manmundra @shivaroor @rahulsinghx @penguinindia @manwaniyogesh @sunil_chainani @prasoon_garg @RanjibMazumder @raghavguptaaa”

Major Mohit Sharma, who was posthumously awarded the Ashok Chakra, infiltrated Hizbul Mujahideen under the alias of Iftikhar Bhatt. He was killed in a battle with terrorists in Hafruda forests of Jammu and Kashmir in March 2009.

Dhrishyam Films has backed critically-acclaimed movies such as "Ankhon Dekhi", "Dhanak" and "Masaan", while Applause Entertainment, known for series like "Scam 1992" and "Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors", is foraying into the film production with the "Iftikhar".

The production on the film is set to begin in September this year, with the makers eyeing an Independence Day 2022 release.
