Upcoming Hotstar special Ops Dates:
The principal photography of Special Ops starts in August 2019 and footage of filming releases on 23 February 2020. In an interview with Scroll.in Neeraj Panday talks about the genre he picks and said:
“Even if I don’t say it, you will find people putting it in that box eventually, so at least the work is compared with our work.”
Further, he adds that-
“More than A Wednesday, I would say Baby kickstarted it majorly. We were talking to a lot of people from the armed forces, and one thing led to another. More people came up with their experiences. All of them had a story to share. We saw the potential in films [on similar themes] that were being made abroad. If we had the right tone, it could be a great story for audiences here to watch and consume.”
