Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Pippa stars Ishaan and Mrunal alongside Soni Razdan, and Priyanshu Painyuli. The one-minute teaser video features Ishaan as Captain (later Brigadier) Balram Singh Mehta, a veteran of the 45th Cavalry Tank Squadron, who went on to fight for Bangladesh.

Packed with heavy emotions and some intense war scenes, Ishaan emerges as a young war hero who leads soldiers to liberate the then East Pakistan. The first glimpse of the warm drama hits the right chord with dialogues like ‘Joy Bangla’—the popular war cry of the liberation war. It also featured a glimpse of Soni and Mrunal who will be seen as Ishaan’s mother and sibling, respectively.

Sharing the teaser on Instagram, Ishaan wrote, “PIPPA in cinemas December 2nd, 2022.On the momentous occasion of our country’s Independence Day - presenting a glimpse from a film we’ve collectively put our heart, gut and soul into. May our soil, our people and our culture be blessed always. It’s been an honour to represent the valour and bravery of our defence forces. More to come.”
