ZEE5’s ‘State of Siege: Temple Attack’ based on true events

ZEE5 has released the official teaser of its upcoming movie ‘State of Siege: Temple Attack’, which is based on the 2002 Akshardham temple attack. It will premiere on the platform on 9 July. 

The trailer offers a glimpse of a highly tensive situation. It opens with a group of terrorists planning to create chaos at Akshardham Temple, Gujarat. They begin open fire as soon as they reach the temple, making the pilgrims their captives. The National Security Guard (NSG) team is charged with the mission to rescue the hostages and protect the temple. 

State of Siege: Temple Attack is set to mark the digital debut of Akshaye Khanna, who is playing the role of an NSG officer. The movie also stars Vivek Dahiya and Gautam Rode alongside him.

The movie is produced by Abhimanyu Singh of Contiloe Pictures, and directed by Ken Ghosh, known for directing movies like ‘Ishq Vishk’ and ‘Fida’.

Sharing the excitement for his new movie, Ghosh said in a statement:

“State of Siege: Temple Attack is not just a film. It is a tribute to the NSG commandos of India who are always ready to risk their lives to protect us. As a son of a naval officer, I have grown up in awe of our armed forces. In State of Siege: Temple Attack, we have tried our best to give a fitting tribute to our heroes, and I cannot wait for the release of the film on ZEE5.”

ZEE5 also made a web series earlier, titled ‘State of Siege: 26/11’, revolving around the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
