Sumeet Vyas roped in for Mahesh Manjrekar’s war drama on Disney+ Hotstar

Sumeet Vyas is set to join Abhay Deol for Disney+ Hotstar’s upcoming war drama, based on the 1962 Indo-China war. Directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, the web series is reportedly being shot on a grand scale.

With the shoot having started in 2019, the web series was supposed to be in its final stages. However, work had been impacted amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Talking about the delay, Vyas said in a statement:

“I was shooting for this war-series and only patch work was left…The post production also took a hit, it was supposed to happen in LA and then they (makers) were trying to figure it out here.”

“Last, I heard they managed to put together everything. The primary shoot is over, now they are doing post production,” Vyas added.

Back in November 2019, Abhay Deol took it to Instagram to tease the news regarding his upcoming role:

Though nothing’s been confirmed, Vyas has hinted at the release happening within the following 12 months. Given the recent border disputes between India and China, the anti-China sentiment has been on the rise. Hence, the timing of the upcoming web series, couldn’t be more opportune.
