About The Vaccine War

After the success of The Kashmir Files, director Vivek Agnihotri had announced his next film, The Vaccine War, in November 2022. Though not much has been revealed about the film, The Vaccine War is likely to 'open certain chapters about Indian bio-scientists and indigenous vaccines'. The film reportedly also pays tribute to the dedication of the medical fraternity and scientists during the uncertain times of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking about the film, Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri had earlier said, as quoted by news agency ANI, “When The Kashmir Files was postponed during the 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.”
