Thread Contributor: Gaganjyoti KalitaNews: News History TV18’s docu on surgical strikes to premiere on 22 Jan
MUMBAI: Factual entertainment channel History TV18 will premiere a documentary based on 2016 Surgical Strikes carried out by the Indian army on 22 January at 9 pm.

Incidentally, Kumar Mangalam Birla’s Applause Entertainment has acquired the rights of the first chapter of Shiv Aroor and Rahul Singh’s book ‘India’s Most Fearless’ published by Penguin Random House India to produce its first series based on the cross-border surgical strikes conducted by the Indian army in 2016.

The 10 part drama series, which is being produced by Irada Entertainment for Applause Entertainment, is being planned for a 2018 launch. The project is being led by film director Samar Khan.

Titled Special Operations: India ‘Surgical Strikes’, the documentary follows two of the Indian Army’s elite Paratrooper Special Forces Strike Teams on their missions – to carry out precision strikes on Terrorist Launchpads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir. The story is re-lived by those who were directly involved in the military operation. They reveal what actually happened behind the scenes and on the ground.

On 18 September 2016, four Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists attacked an Indian Army Garrison in the town of Uri, Jammu and Kashmir. 19 Indian soldiers were martyred in the Fidayeen attack. Eleven days later, the Indian Army carried out a series of deadly strikes across the Line of Control. This Counter-Terrorist Operation is better known as the Surgical Strikes.

History TV18’s documentary brings to life the planning and execution of the daring operation. The special programme narrates the true story of the secret operation, with dramatic recreations and first-person accounts of key decision makers in the government, the military top brass and the Special Forces operatives who led the strikes.

The programme features some of the most respected names in India’s National Security Establishment. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, former Defence minister Manohar Parrikar, former Chief of Army Staff General Dalbir Singh among others, shedding light on how the drama unfolded. Defence analyst and author, Nitin Gokhale will also share his views on the subject.

Speaking about the programme, A+E Networks| TV18 MD & Network18 president Avinash Kaul said, “With Surgical Strikes, History TV18 embarks on the next stage of its content evolution which involves pushing the envelope on pioneering, differentiated content that reflects the contemporary history and has had an impact on the nation’s collective consciousness.”
