Bollywood’s well-known actress Chitrangda Singh, who earlier produced "Soorma" as her debut production, has secured the rights for the biopic on Param Vir Chakra awardee Subedar Yogender Yadav.
A movie based on Subedar Yogender Yadav, who fought in the Kargil war and became the youngest ever to receive the Param Vir Chakra - the country's highest award for bravery in conflict - at the age of 19, is in the works.
In a statement, the Desi Boyz actress Chitrangda revealed, "I'm very excited to tell stories of real heroes that are many times forgotten even though they still live amongst us. We need to glorify their journey. This will be another attempt to do what I tried with 'Soorma'."
The movie is yet-to-be-titled. Yogender Yadav also remains as one of the three only living recipients of the Param Vir Chakra and has since continued to serve in the Indian Army.
