J. P Dutta's mega war epic 'LoC' will be released on a date that is special for every Indian - January 26, The Republic Day.
'LoC' will be released on January 26, even though it is a Monday for then it would be a perfect way to honour our soldiers who attained martyrdom during the Kargil War.
And all those who have seen the rushes of the film swear by the mind-boggling work done by Dutta. 'Only Dutta could have done something like this', they remark.
'LoC' has a huge star cast, including Abhishek Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgan, Nagarjuna, Saif Ali Khan, Suniel Shetty, Akshaye Khanna, Manoj Bajpai, Karan Nath, Sanjay Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Raj Babbar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Bikram Saluja, Munish (Armaan) Kohli, Himanshu Malik, Amar Updhayay, Puru Raaj Kumar, Inder Kumar, Mohnish Behl, Ashish Vidyarthi, Kiran Kumar, Ayub Khan, Sudesh Berry, Salil Ankola, Raj Zutshi and Rajeev Goswami.
Kareena Kapoor, Rani Mukherji, Raveena Tandon, Eesha Deol, Namrata Shirodkar, Mahima Choudhary, Sameera Reddy, Preeti Jhangiani, Divya Dutta.
Produced and directed by Dutta, 'LoC' has lyrics by Javed Akhtar set to the tunes of Anu Malik. Its songs are already making waves in the market.
But Dutta insists that 'LoC' isn't a film about frivolous entertainment. It has to do with a crucial slice of recent history - the Kargil conflict - that changed our lives drastically.
