On a high after the success of Adivi Sesh’s Major, the film’s co-producers, Sony Pictures International Productions, have announced their next multilingual, to be produced simultaneously in Hindi and Telugu. Varun Tej is all set to headline the bilingual that the banner is co-producing alongside Ghani makers, Renaissance Pictures. The film will officially go on floors this November 2022.

The formal launch event of the project, tentatively titled VT13, was held today. Much like Major, the film will also revolve around the life of an officer who worked for the nation. VT13, based on real incidents, promises to be an ode to the Indian Air Force. The film will mark Varun Tej’s entry into the Hindi market. Some of the actor’s other memorable films are Fidaa, Tholi Prema and Kanche.

While elaborating on the film, the makers share that VT13 will be a patriotic, edge-of-the-seat entertainer, and depict the valour and sacrifices of our heroes on the frontlines and the challenges as they confront one of the biggest, fiercest aerial attacks that the country has ever seen. Cinematographer, ad-filmmaker Shakti Pratap Singh will be making his directorial debut with the drama.

Varun Tej shared that he was glad to have earned the opportunity to play an Indian Air Force officer on screen and celebrate their valour. “We hope to make a film that will be a perfect tribute to the Indian Air Force. The script for this film offers me an opportunity to come out of the mould and try something new. My role has many layers and I’ll undergo immense training for it.”

Lada Guruden Singh, General Manager and Head of Sony Pictures International Productions, India mentioned that the banner has been on the hunt for scripts that celebrate the country’s true heroes alike Major. They look forward to further that idea with this bilingual to be made in collaboration with Varun Tej, Shakti Pratap Singh and Sandeep Mudda and provide a unique cinematic experience for viewers.

VT13 will be shot in Telugu and Hindi simultaneously and will have a grand release in 2023.
