The first look of Rana Daggubati, the protagonist of the much-anticipated, India’s first naval war story, The Ghazi Attack, was revealed on Tuesday. A tight mug shot of the actor shows him as a naval officer.

For scores of Indians who associate the actor with his macho roles in Baby and later Baahubali, this is a rather sober image. None of the rippling biceps and taut torso can be seen here. Instead, Rana sports a sharp and neat bearded look.

The Telugu-Hindi bilingual film is helmed by first-time director Sankalp Reddy and also stars Taapsee Pannu. The film which is and is based on the sinking of Pakistani submarine PNS Ghazi during the 1971 Indo-Pak war will be distributed by Dharma Productions. Reddy has also written a book on the PNS Ghazi’s sinking called Blue Fish: The War Beneath.
