After commemorating the Indian Army with Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike in 2019 and recently announcing another war film titled Pippa starring Ishaan Khatter, production house, RSVP’S air force film Tejas is all set to go on floors this December. The film chronicles the story of a daring and ferocious fighter pilot, which will be played by Kangana Ranaut. The Indian Air Force was the first of the country’s defence forces to introduce women into combat roles in 2016. And Tejas draws inspiration from this milestone event.
