Ae Watan Mere Watan trailer

The Sara Ali Khan starrer Ae Watan Mere Watan trailer has been released today. The film, which documents a crucial phase in the quest for independence, is based on true events and is set against the backdrop of the Quit India Movement of 1942.

In the biopic, Sara Ali Khan will be seen playing the role of Usha Mehta. In addition to spreading the notion that India can govern itself and doesn’t need British help, she uses radio to promote the cause.

The three-minute trailer takes viewers back to the time before independence by introducing them to 22-year-old Bombay college student Usha. In her quest to aid India in gaining its independence, Usha establishes an underground radio station, which serves as the catalyst for the Quit India Movement. The trailer emphasizes the bravery, selflessness, and resourcefulness of the country’s youth all through India’s struggle for independence through the journey of her character.

Inspired by real-life events, the film follows a crucial phase in India’s struggle for independence. The patriotic thriller-drama is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharmatic Entertainment, Apoorva Mehta, and Somen Mishra.

Along with Emraan Hashmi making a special guest appearance, the film, which is directed by Kannan Iyer, also stars Sachin Khedekar, Abhay Verma, Sparsh Shrivastav, Alexx O’Nell, and Anand Tiwari in important parts. The film has been written by Kannan and Darab Farooqui.

During a recent interview, Sara spoke about her character and said, it has been an honor beyond words to portray such a powerful character in Ae Watan Mere Watan. The movie serves as both a tribute to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder of the sacrifices made by many unsung heroes, the actor added.

The film is scheduled to release on March 21 in five languages, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada, on Prime Videos in India and in over 240 other countries and territories globally.
