Emraan Hashmi will soon be seen embracing the role of socialist political leader Ram Manohar Lohia in the patriotic thriller ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’. The makers of the Sara Ali Khan starrer dropped a new poster for the film yesterday featuring Emraan Hashmi as the ‘fearless voice of independence’. Emraan Hashmi recently opened up about his special appearance in the film and shared some really insighful details about his role. Here’s what Emraan Hashmi had to say…

Speaking about playing the role of a freedom fighter, Emraan Hashmi said, “I have never before played the role of a freedom fighter, and getting the opportunity to step into the shoes of Ram Manohar Lohia was an absolute honour. I worked closely with Kannan and Darab and looking into the extensive research they did, understanding Lohia ji’s history and journey and add my own flair to it.” The ‘Tiger 3’ actor further added, “His immense contributions have shaped a whole lot of India’s history and is truly remarkable. I am looking forward to the audience seeing me in this new avatar. It is a privilege to be a part of a story that not only needs to be told but will also  inspire generations to come.”

I’m really excited to watch this biographical drama film! Both the actors look striking and promising in the first-look posters and trailer for the movie. Directed by Kannan Iyer, ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ is based on the life of freedom fighter Usha Mehta. Produced by Dharmatic Entertainment, ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ is set to release on Amazon Prime Video on March 21, 2024.
