The Indian Air Force (IAF) is the first of India's defence forces to induct women into combat roles. The film Tejas is set in 2016 when this historic decision was rolled out. It revolves around a daring female fighter pilot.
Kangana Ranaut who is playing the protagonist underwent an extensive training of four months to master the special combat techniques used in the forces. It is for the time that she will be playing a soldier on the silver screen.
"Very often, the sacrifices made by our brave women in uniform go unnoticed by the nation. Tejas is a film where I have the honour of playing the role of one such Air Force pilot who puts country before self. I hope we instil a sense of patriotism and pride in the youth of today with this movie. I'm looking forward to the journey with Sarvesh and Ronnie on this one," says Ranaut.
