The unknown. #CreativeConsciousness."
The official announcement of the star cast of the film is still awaited. Speaking about the film Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri earlier said, "When The Kashmir Files was postponed during covid lockdown, I started researching on it. Then we started researching with the scientists of ICMR & NIV who made our own vaccine possible.
Their story of struggle and sacrifice was overwhelming and while researching we understood how these scientists fought a war waged against India not just by foreign agencies but even our own people.
Yet, we won against superpowers by making fastest, cheapest and safest vaccine. I thought this story must be told so that every Indian can feel proud of their country."
Meanwhile, Anupam was recently seen in the family entertainer film 'Uunchai' alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Boman Irani and Parineeti Chopra which received positive responses from the audience.
