Kangana Ranaut's 'Tejas' targets a Dussehra 2022 theatrical outing
Tejas makers have fixed a lucrative release date for the film. It will hit cinema halls on Dussehra next year, that is October 5. Kangana Ranaut, who recently bagged her fourth National Film Award, will don the uniform for the first time in her life in this film. Touted to be "an ode to the Indian Air Force," Tejas is a Sarvesh Mewara-directorial.
Why does it matter?
- Ranaut's last release Thalaivii didn't do much business but she won a National Film Award for her output. This just goes on to say that the box office numbers didn't do justice to her stature.
- Also given the fact that she is playing an Air Force officer for the first time makes it a worthy watch since the actress is known for strong performances.

RSVP Movies' first Armed Forces-themed project was a colossal success
Uri: The Surgical Strike, starring Vicky Kaushal, was the first Armed Forces-based project to be backed by RSVP Movies. And, we all know the sensation it was. So hopes are definitely high on Tejas, which will highlight the 2016 decision of the Indian Air Force to include more women in combat. Apart from Ranaut, the movie co-stars Anshul Chauhan, Varun Mitra, and Sankalp Gupta.
Ranaut will next be seen in spy thriller, 'Dhaakad'
Apart from Tejas, the star will be playing a spy in Dhaakad. The actioner also features Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta. The movie releases on April 8 next year. The 34-year-old will also be seen playing former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in a project to be helmed and produced by her. Further, Ranaut will also lead Manikarnika Returns: The Legend of Didda.
