Ahead of India’s 74th Republic Day celebrations, Prime Video launched the first look at the upcoming Amazon Original movie, Ae Watan Mere Watan, an inspiring tribute to the fearless heroes of India’s struggle for freedom. A Dharmatic Entertainment Production, the movie is being produced by Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta, with Somen Mishra serving as the co-producer.

The just-launched, first-look video transports us to a bygone era where we see a tense, yet extremely focused, young girl expertly assembling a radio-like device in a dimly lit room. The camera gradually reveals that the young girl is none other than Sara Ali Khan in a never-seen-before, non-glamorous avatar. As she begins to speak on the radio, her voice is imbued with courage and determination; she shares the message of independence with the entire nation via her underground radio station, until she is interrupted by the incessant banging at the door. 

A thriller-drama inspired by true events, Ae Watan Mere Watan, follows the intrepid journey of a college girl in Bombay who goes on to become a freedom fighter. This fictional tale is set against the backdrop of the Quit India Movement in 1942. It is a story about the courage, patriotism, sacrifice, and resourcefulness of the youth of the nation.

Sara Ali Khan shared her excitement on playing this role in Ae Watan Mere Watan and said, 

“I am so excited and honoured that Prime Video and Dharmatic Entertainment have allowed me to be a part of a film that I truly believe deserves to be told. As an actor, and more importantly, as an Indian, I am proud to be able to portray a character that echoes bravery, strength, and courage. Working with Kannan Iyer sir is a sheer privilege as he is so passionate and emotionally invested in this story himself. And while of course, it is very challenging to essay a character that is vastly different from anything that I’ve done before, it is a project I’m going to work really hard on. And most importantly, I’m going to cherish every day that I get to play an enigmatic freedom fighter.”

Directed by Kannan Iyer and written jointly by Darab Farooqui and Kannan Iyer, the film is a thriller drama inspired by true events and will see Sara Ali Khan play the character of a valiant freedom fighter. Ae Watan Mere Watan will be available on Amazon Prime
