National award-winning filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri’s much-awaited drama film The Vaccine War will no longer be released during the Independence Day weekend, as announced earlier.
Following the tremendous success of The Kashmir Files, Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri and his producer-wife Pallavi Joshi are currently giving the final touches to The Vaccine War. While a few days of shooting are yet to be completed, the duo also plans to organise pre-release screenings of the film in the USA, similar to their strategy with The Kashmir Files, before its official release in India.
It is this additional plan that has led to the decision of shifting the film’s release to Dussehra 2023.
The Vaccine War aims to explore a thought-provoking narrative surrounding the global vaccine industry and its impact on society. With The Kashmir Files receiving critical acclaim and a positive response from the audience, expectations are high for Vivek Agnihotri’s next directorial venture. The filmmaker and his team are committed to delivering a compelling and socially relevant film that sparks discussions and sheds light on pertinent issues.
Produced by Pallavi Joshi and Abhishek Agarwal, “The Vaccine War” is based on India’s journey to develop the COVID-19 vaccine amid the pandemic and the impact it had globally. It stars Nana Patekar, Anupam Kher, and Sapthami Gowda, among others in key roles.
