Bollywood actor Ishaan Khatter shared the first look of his upcoming film Pippa this morning. He took to Instagram to share a still from the movie.
Pippa is a war-drama based on Brigadier Mehta, a veteran of the 45th Cavalry tank squadron, who along with his siblings, fought on the eastern front during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.
Ishaan shared the snaps and revealed that it was the first day of shooting for Pippa. The photograph showed a clean shaven Ishaan in a battle tank. Take a look:
He captioned it, “This is going to be special. ‘Shooting’ begins for our #Pippa! Godspeed.”
Brigadier Mehta, on whom the story is based, was invited today to give the inaugural slate clap on the first day of shooting. The film is being bankrolled by producers Ronnie Screwvala at RSVP and Siddharth Roy Kapur at Roy Kapur Films.
Ronnie Screwvala said, “I’m happy that we’ve begun shooting for Pippa with Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta clapping the inaugural slate. Kicking off the schedule on such a positive note ensures a steady momentum throughout the course of the production. We’re raring to go with a brilliant ensemble cast and filmmaker Raja Krishna Menon, who has a savvy eye for war films.”
