Varun Dhawan reveals Sara Ali Khan as the lead of Prime Video’s Ae Watan Mere Watan; actress to play freedom fighter
Bollywood Hungama had previously reported that the actress will be playing the role of freedom fighter Usha Mehta. A source told Bollywood Hungama, “Sara signed this film earlier this year. Now that she has finished her other commitments, the film will go on the floors in a few weeks. She has been prepping for the film and is very excited to essay a real-life character for the first time.”
As per the source, the film will majorly focus on Usha Mehta starting an underground radio station, called Congress Radio. It functioned for a few months during the Quit India Movement of 1942. In those few months, it left a huge mark as it greatly assisted the freedom struggle movement by broadcasting uncensored news and other information banned by the British government of India.
