As soon as JP Dutta’s war epic Paltan was announced, a lot of buzz has started to build over it. After Arjun Rampal and Abhishek Bachchan, another name for the cast of the film is out. And, it is Sonakshi Sinha’s brother Luv Sinha. The Dabangg actress says she is a "proud sister" as her brother is set to star in veteran filmmaker JP Dutta's upcoming Hindi war drama film Paltan.
Sonakshi on Friday took to Twitter to share her excitement with her fans and followers. "Woohoo! Luv Sinha is part of this 'Paltan'. A film by the legendary JP Dutta sir! Proud sister," Sonakshi tweeted.
Dutta is known for war films including the National Award winning Border. The first look of Paltan was shared recently and it shows silhouettes of army men treading an uneven path, with a tagline: "Brother to my right. Brother to my left. Together we stand. Together we fight."
The film also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Gurmeet Choudhary and Sonu Sood. Abhishek, who has previously featured in Dutta's directorials like "Refugee", "Umrao Jaan" and "LOC Kargil", shared the film's poster and captioned it: "Brother to my left, brother to my right. Together we stand. Together we fight! I'm part of the 'Paltan', are you?."
Going by the first look, it is clear that film is based on a theme of war, with army men and war-torn landscape in the background. Dog tags with the officers name on it, can be seen on the top of the poster. The tagline is what catches our attention.
Produced by JP Films and directed by Dutta, the film will go on the floors later this year, and is scheduled for a summer 2018 release.
