So, the film is based on Indian Army’s Operation Khukri where in soldiers from the Gorkha Brigade of the army from North East rescued Kenyan residents and Indian soldiers from a siege of rebels without harming a single life! SRK is inspired to make it into a film and will soon lock in the cast. We are not surprised since he made a debut into the world of Showbiz with a serial based on war, called Fauji.
