Akshaye Khanna is ready to make his debut on OTT with the ZEE5 film State of Siege: Temple Attack. The film, produced by Continue Pictures, is based on the 2002 attack on the Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Over 30 socialmediagossips were killed in the attack and more than 80 were injured. The National Security Guard (NSG) has arrested the terrorists and brought the situation under control. The film comes after the recounting of the November 26 attacks in Mumbai in State of Siege: 26/11.
Akshaye will play the role of a special task force officer in charge of the mission. Excited about putting on the uniform in the film, Khanna said in a statement: “To be able to wear the uniform without taking the oath of ultimate sacrifice – this is a privilege only granted to an actor. My only focus during manufacture was not to disregard this privilege. “
Commenting on the project, producer Abhimanyu Singh praised its main character: “Very rarely have we highlighted the role of Indian commandos in neutralizing attacks by our enemies. The State of Siege series was designed to convey their perspective and contribution. The success of State of Siege: 26/11 encouraged us to tell these stories further, and the obvious extension for us was to record the events of the temple attack that shook the nation. Akshaye’s demeanor and craft make him the perfect addition to this narrative, and we are very excited to be working with ZEE5 again in this regard. “
Directed by Ken Ghosh, State of Siege: Temple Attack will soon premiere on ZEE5.
