JP Dutta has time and again enthralled the audience with his real depiction of war in the films.
Speaking about the film, the ace filmmaker said," Paltan is truly special for me, as it completes my war trilogy, which I had promised to do during Border. When I heard what happened during 1967, it made me sit up and question why the story wasn’t ever told. It’s high time that this group of Indian soldiers are given their due; it is time India celebrated their victory".
He further added,"Paltan is my ode to India, as I complete my war trilogy after Border and LoC Kargil. This film showcases the brotherhood that our soldiers have among themselves and shows how our Indian soldiers more than often go beyond their call of duty when it comes to serving our motherland"
Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios, says, “We are happy to join hands with JP Dutta on Paltan, as he completes his war trilogy, after Border(1997) and LOC Kargil(2003). It’s an honour for our studio to portray the story of Indian soldiers who bravely fought during the 1967 battle.”
