Vijay Diwas 2022

Indians have a special place in their hearts for Vijay Diwas, which falls on December 16. Every year, it is observed as a means to recognise the courage, persistence, and bravery of the Indian Armed Forces, who helped create Bangladesh by defeating Pakistan in the 1971 war.

On this day in 1971, the combined power of the Indian Army and Bangladesh’s Mukti Bahini forced the commander of the Pakistani army, Lieutenant General Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi, to submit. As we commemorate the story of the greatest act of patriotism by Indian soldiers, here is a look at some Bollywood films on Indian soldiers who lost their lives for their country.

One of the most well-liked films of 2021 was ‘Shershaah’, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani. Based on the story of Captain Vikram Batra, a hero of the Kargil War in 1999 who gave his life in the cause of his country while defending Indian territory from Pakistani invaders.

Bhuj: The Pride of India

Abhishek Dudhaiya’s war movie casts Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, and Nora Fatehi in the lead roles. IAF Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik battles through all obstacles in the story to complete his goal of restoring the Bhuj air base with the help of 300 local women.

The Ghazi Attack

Sankalp Reddy is the writer and director of the 2017 Indian war movie Ghazi, which was simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi languages, and was titled ‘The Ghazi Attack’. In particular, the puzzling sinking of PNS Ghazi in 1971 during the Indo-Pakistani War served as the inspiration for Ghazi. Rana Daggubati, Taapsee Pannu, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni, and Satya Dev were the stars that acted in this film.


The movie, which JP Dutta wrote and directed, was based on actual events that took place during the Battle of Longewala in 1971. Sunny Deol, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty, Akshaye Khanna, Puneet Issar, and Kulbhushan Kharbanda played the key characters in the India-Pakistan war movie. In 1998, J.P. Dutta took up the National Award for Best Direction.

LOC Kargil

Sanjay Dutt, Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan, and Akshaye Khanna played the lead actors in the 2003 film, which also starred Saif Ali Khan. The Kargil War, which India and Pakistan fought in 1999, served as the inspiration for the historical movie. The movie has one of the longest runs of any Indian movie ever at 225 minutes.

Decoding Kiara Advani’s phenomenal look at the NMACC event

Kiara Advani is a vision in her ‘all things sparkly’ look at the opening ceremony of the NMACC event



Actor Kiara Advani surely made heads turn with her dreamy look on the first day of the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre opening event in Mumbai. She walked in with her husband Sidharth Malhotra, both donning golden-beige ensembles, and left the shutterbugs and the crowd gushing over their chemistry and adorable PDA moments.

Advani’s ethnic regal look was to die for. She sparkled as a thousand stars combined would. The Shershaah actor wore a heavy lehenga with a modern chic twist, exuding radiance and confidence.

She shared a series of pictures on Instagram posing with Sidharth Malhotra, from before the event. The fans showered compliments and love in the comments section for the couple. Have a look:

Decoding Kiara Advani’s look

Kiara Advani opted for a shimmery beige lehenga with a gold blouse, encrusted with pearls and badla.  Bollywood’s favourite designer, Manish Malhotra, designed hers as well as Sidharth’s outfit.

The backless blouse had jaal embroidery, the designer’s trademark infinity-style cropped hem and a fitted bust spread to the lower point of her neck. She wore a high-waist lehenga with very detailed embroidery, a patterned work of classic zardozi, pearls, Swarovski crystals and sequins. The lehenga had a mermaid-like silhouette with a long floor-sweeping train at the back.

Her outfit was elevated as the designer ditched the quintessential dupatta and added a Banarsi tissue liquid gold drape, which doubled up as sleeves. With nude pink nails, the only piece of jewellery Kiara wore was her solitaire engagement ring.

The perfect make-up:

Making a statement with her smokey eyes, Kiara had glamorous make-up done by Lekha Gupta. Her eyes were kohl-lined on the eyelid and the waterline, with a smokey nude-brown eyeshadow.

Kiara had her signature nude pink lips, lightly blushed cheeks and a blinding touch of highlighter. She looked flawless because of a dewy base, dark and thick brows, mascara on the lashes, and subtle contouring for that chiselled look.

Her look was perfected with sleek and straight hair, let loose with a middle part and lengthening below her waist.

Her husband and co-actor from the film Shershaah, Sidharth Malhotra twinned with Kiara in a beige embroidered blazer featuring notch lapel collars, and padded shoulders with an open front. The blazer was layered over a geometric Chikankari kurta, with a plunging-neck bandhgala. He completed his look with beige pinstripe pants, classic mojaris, and a neat and back-swept hairdo.

On the work front, Kiara Advani will be next seen with Kartik Aaryan, once again, in the romantic drama Satyaprem Ki Katha. The film will hit the theatres on June 29. Kiara is also shooting for Game Changer with actor Ram Charan.
