Sharing the teaser, Ranaut wrote, "Ready to take off for the love of our nation! Bharat ko chhedoge toh chhodenge nahi. Trailer out on Indian Air Force Day, 8th October."
Set in 2016, Tejas traces the story of a daring woman fighter pilot. Earlier, speaking about her role in the film, Kangana Ranaut had said the sacrifices made by our brave women in uniform often go unnoticed and Tejas is a film that honours the role of such an Air Force pilot who puts the country before her life.
Besides Tejas, Kangana Ranaut also has Emergency lined up in her kitty. Directed by Ranaut herself, the film revolves around India from 1975 to 1977 when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi declared an emergency across the country. The film will also star Bhumika Chawla, Milind Soman, Mahima Chaudhary, and Anupam Kher in titular roles. It also marks the last film of the late veteran actor Satish Kaushik.
