Director JP Dutta for his upcoming film Paltan went a step ahead to shoot at real locations and make it look more authentic and visually appealing.
In order to bore the the same resemblance of the border area in East Sikkim, the director scouted and recreated locations in Ladakh.
Since Nathu La Pass has changed over 50 years, the makers of the film decided to shoot in Ladakh so that the film look as close to reality as it can.
The whole shoot of war sequences lasted for 56 days in the chilly weather of Ladakh, before the team headed for Chandigarh.
Based on the Nathu La military clashes of 1967, which took place along the Sikkim border, Paltan showcases an untold story of combat between the Indian and Chinese forces.
This war drama starring an ensemble cast of Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Choudhary, Harshvardhan Rane and Siddhant Kapoor Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Harshvardhan Rane, Gurmeet Choudhary, Abdul Qadir Amin, Sonu Sood, Sonal Chauhan, Esha Gupta, Monica Gill, Rohit Roy, Siddhant Kapoor, Luv Sinha, and Dipika Kakar will complete JP Dutta’s war trilogy after Border and LOC Kargil.
