The film in question is a remake of the popular Malayalam film Keerthichakra and will be directed by Major Ravi (an ex-Indian Army Major). Major Ravi, who has been associated with directors like Priyadarshan and Rajkumar Santoshi in the past, had directed the original version starring Mohanlal which was a runaway success.
Speaking about the film, Suniel says, "Yes... I am excited about doing an action film after a long while. The original version Keerthichakra was a huge success and I hope that the Hindi remake also does well. I play the role of an officer who leads a team of 10 young commandos. My character is like a mentor and guide to the younger boys. "
The film is based on the militancy issue in Jammu and Kashmir While Suniel has been finalized for the lead role; the rest of the cast is yet to be finalized.
