New Delhi, May 9: Shah Rukh Khan’s home production banner Red Chillies Entertainment is building up a film on India’s most successful and brave rescue operation overseas, ‘Operation Khukri’.

This is King Khan’s most ambitious project so far. This project is the biggest in terms of scale and it is based on a remarkable achievement of the Indian Army. It will be the most costly project that the production house has undertaken.

A source from Red Chillies stated that a lot of time has been spent developing the script in association with Azure Entertainment. It has been researched extensively and will be mounted on a really large scale. It will be a true depiction of a massive military operation and will celebrate our heroes of the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force.

Operation Khukri was launched back in 2000 in a tropical forest in Sierra Leone which is situated in West Africa. Under the leadership of Major (now Lt Col) Harinder Sood, 120 able and dedicated IAF officers were airlifted from New Delhi and flown to Africa with a mission to rescue 223 peacekeepers of India who were sent to the country by the United Nations in order to aid the government in tackling Revolutionary United Front (RUF), a rebellious outfit.

The movie will hit the floors this year. The film will be shot on real locations in Africa and will have some real-life armed conflict sequences.

Khan has earlier played a role of a soldier in a film titled Army in 1996. And besides Farah Khan’s 2004 film Main Hoon Na and Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan in 2012, the superstar also featured as an Army man in the popular television show Fauji.
