As reported by us earlier, Telugu actor Adivi Sesh is starring in a film inspired by the life of late National Security Guard (NSG) commando, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. Titled ‘Major’, the film is directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka. The film was initially scheduled to hit screens in July this year but got postponed due to the pandemic. They have now informed that the film will be having its theatrical release on February 11, 2022.
Sandeep Unnikrishnan was a valiant soldier who saved the lives of numerous hostages before being martyred by terrorists in the Taj Mahal Palace attack on the 26th of November, 2008. The makers did extensive research on his life and have also added cinematic elements to it. According to them, the film is more about the way he lived and not the way he lost his life.

It is produced by superstar Mahesh Babu under his banner G Mahesh Babu Entertainment, in collaboration with Sony Pictures India and A+S Movies.
