Hindi Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty will reportedly play the lead
role. According to initial reports, Major Ravi has begun the
preliminary preparations for remaking Keerthichakra in
Hindi. More details are awaited.
Keerthichakra is based on the real-life experiences of
Major Mahadevan, a former Indian Army Major assigned on
counter-terrorism activities in Punjab and Kashmir. Major portions
of the film were shot in C.R.P.F. camp in Srinagar, Pichilora and
parts of Kargil. Mohanlal and Tamil actor Jeeva played the key
roles in the original which was dubbed in Tamil as Aran.
