The first look and the release date of this movie was revealed by the moviemakers in the media. Producer Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur along with Director Raja Krishna Menon attended this event and interacted with the media, answering a few questions related to the movie story and their characters. This interesting movie with a talented cast will be available for streaming directly on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video.

Producer Roy Kapur expressed, “Ishaan, Mrunal, Priyanshu, and Soni have delivered impeccable performances in their respective roles. We firmly believe that this extraordinary tale of an entire family’s wartime experiences will deeply resonate with audiences. We are excited that, through Prime Video, we can share this beautiful narrative not only with viewers across our nation but also with audiences worldwide.”

Producer Ronnie Screwvala remarked, “For me, ‘Pippa’ transcends the boundaries of a wartime film. It stands as a salute to the courageous and patriotic Indian heroes whose fearlessness and valor continue to uphold India’s strength and sovereignty. Telling a true story on screen is never a simple task, and when it revolves around the heroic acts of war, the stakes become even higher.”

Raja Menon stated, “Upon reading Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta’s book, ‘The Burning Chaffees,’ I was convinced that this remarkable yet lesser-known tale of triumph deserved to be shared with the world. I believe we have successfully crafted a fitting tribute to our armed forces by bringing to life this narrative, hidden in the depths of our rich historical heritage.”
