Now, the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) are using this device to fight anti-terror and counter-insurgency operations. The machine in the movie is the same as the one built by Idea-Forge, a company founded by three IIT-Bombay alumni. The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) have tied up with Idea-Forge to refine the UAV and have named it Netra.
What started out in a movie is now going to be used to fight terrorism taking the whole concept of being innovative to a whole new level. Clearly, the Vinod Chopra camp is ahead of their game not only in terms of filming but also technology in general.
