JP Dutta, who is famous for his war dramas like ‘Border’ and ‘LOC Kargil’ is back with yet another thrilling story based on the Nathu La military clashes of 1967 which took place along the Sikkim border, titled ‘Paltan’.
The makers on Thursday launched the official trailer of the film starring an ensemble cast including Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Choudhary, Harshvardhan Rane, Siddhant Kapoor, Luv Sinha, Esha Gupta, Sonal Chauhan, Deepika Kakar and Monica Gill.
The trailer opens to footage from the 1962 Indo-Chinese war where India lost the battle. Soon it shifts to 1967 when India retaliated to win over Nathu La, Sikkim. We also get to see glimpses of the army’s families, like we had seen in previous Dutta films. The trailer ends with a powerful tagline: “A martyr dies not when he is shot, but when he is forgotten”.

The war-drama is set to release on September 7.
