Karan Johar To Produce His Third Biopic On An Unsung National Hero; Plan Is To Make A War-Hero Epic For Every Independence Day
After the critical and mass success of two war hero biopics - Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl in 2020 and Shershaah in 2021, which were both released during the Independence Day weekend - producer Karan Johar is now on to his third biopic on freedom fighter Usha Mehta. This biopic too will be released on Independence Day 2022.

Sources very close to Karan Johar say the filmmaker intends to make his Independence Day films a regular occurrence.

“The idea now is to produce a film about an unsung national hero every year. It started as a one-off thing when Karan Johar produced Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl about the first air force pilot of India. Now, this year in 2021, Shershaah about Paramvir Chakra winner Vikram Batra has also been well received. Karan is now on to his third film on a national hero Usha Mehta which will be directed by Kannan Iyer who directed the eerie Ek Tthi Dayan in 2013. The hunt is on to gather the names and achievements of other soldiers, war heroes and freedom fighters,” informs a source.

Quite a change of rhythm for producer Karan Johar, and also a departure from biopics about gangsters and other anti-social elements that have lately emerged from Bollywood.
