Amit to play the role of Major Tango

Titled 'India Strikes - 10 Days', the web-series is based on the first chapter from Shiv Aroor and Rahul Singh's book 'India's Most Fearless'.

Amit in the past has acted in a web series 'Breathe' for Amazon Prime Video.

"My character offers scope to display a fresh side of me as an actor. Major Tango is someone that has many shades," Amit said.

Makers of the series want to highlight the Army's bravery

The series is being directed by Raj Acharya, who has previously directed 'The Battle Of Saragarhi' on Discovery Jeet.

"We want to tell our audiences this true story through an intense narrative and transport them into a world of drama and emotions," Raj said.

Sameer Nair, CEO Applause Entertainment, said, "The web-series highlights the role of our security forces in protecting our country."

Film's shooting to take place in Mumbai and Kashmir

It seems the Uri attacks have piqued interests of filmmakers, as a movie based on it is being shot in Serbia. In this movie, Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam will essay pivotal roles.

The 2016 Uri attack was carried out by 4 heavily-armed militants on 18th September 2016 in J&K. 17 army personnel died in the attack allegedly carried out by militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
