On February 27, the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) shot down two Indian fighter jets meddling into Pakistan’s air space.
The remains of one of the aircraft dropped inside Balakot and Wing Commander Abhinandan was arrested alive.
The PAF named it ‘Operation Swift Retort’ and declared that the day would be honoured every year.
While Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi is set to produce a film titled Balakot – The True Story, that tells the story of the moustached Abhinandan Varthaman who became the Indian national hero, Pakistan is all set to turn the incident into a comedy film.
Khalil ur Rehman Qamar is all prepared to make a film on the Indian pilot and actor Shamoon Abbasi will be playing the lead role.
The movie has been titled “Abhinandan Come On” and the script has been penned by Khalil ur Rehman Qamar himself.
According to reports, it will be a comedy film and will be going on floors on September 20 before Kaaf Kangana which is releasing on October 25.
