The Ishaan Khatter and Mrunal thakur starrer has kicked off its first schedule in Amritsar today. Bollywood actor Ishaan Khatter is all geared up to board on his new project.
The actor took to his Instagram to announce the beginning of the film’s shoot as well as shared his first look ever from the film. We can see a clean shaved Ishaan in a battle tank. He sports a fierce look and that has definitely left his fans excited and intrigued.

Based on The Burning Chaffees written by Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta and scored by Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman, Pippa is a heroic tank battle film that underscores the bravery of Brigadier Mehta, a veteran of the 45th Cavalry tank squadron, who, along with his siblings, fought on the eastern front during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971, which led to the liberation of India’s neighbour Bangladesh. At the centre of the film is the amphibious war tank involved in the victory, affectionately christened “Pippa”, that like an empty ghee da dabba smoothly floats on water.
Ronnie Screwvala (RVSP) and Siddharth Roy Kapur (Roy Kapur Films) have both expressed their happiness about this film and how positive they are and how both of them are thrilled to give this story the ‘sweeping canvas it deserves’. They revealed the teams excitement and hope the audience will have a very special ‘cinematic experience’ in the theatres next year. Director Raja Krishna Menon mentioned he is too, excited to work with such amazing cast and crew. And that he cannot wait to bring the incredible story of ‘valour and liberty’ to audiences.
Produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films, Pippa stars Ishaan Khatter, Mrunal Thakur, Priyanshu Painyuli and Soni Razdan.
