The film is based on the true incidents on the mysterious sinking of PNS Ghazi, a Pakistan submarine during the Indo-Pak 1971 war. Actor Taapsee Pannu is paired with Rana, and she’s rumoured to be playing a refugee.
The film will be directed by debutant Sankalp, and it will be partially based on his own book Blue Fish. Ghazi will be produced by PVP Cinema. The story is about an executive naval officer of the Indian submarine S21 and his team who remain underwater for 18 days.
