Sky Force will release in cinemas exactly a year later on Gandhi Jayanti, i.e. October 2, 2024. The film reportedly stars Veer Pahariya's ex-girfriend Sara Ali Khan as the leading lady.
On the occasion of the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi's and ex-Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri's birth anniversaries on Monday, October 2, Akshay Kumar officially announced his next film Sky Force as he shared the release date announcement video of the film on his social media handles.
"आज गांधी-शास्त्री जयंती के दिन सारा देश कह रहा है - जय जवान, जय किसान, जय विज्ञान, जय अनुसंधान. (Today, on the day of Gandhi-Shastri Jayanti, the whole country is saying – Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyaan, Jai Anusandhaan) No better day than today to announce the incredible story of #SkyForce: Our untold story of India's first and deadliest airstrike. Give it love, please. Jai Hind, Jai Bharat. Presented by Jio Studios and Dinesh Vijan, Sky Force takes flight in cinemas on 2nd October, 2024."
Sky Force will also mark the debut of Veer Pahariaya, whose matrernal grandfather is the famous Indian politician Sushilkumar Shinde. Shinde served as the Minister of Home Affairs and Leader of the House in Lok Sabha in the last decade and was also the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra in the early 2000s.
But the real claim to fame for Veer Pahariya is the fact that he dated Sara Ali Khan and his brother Shikhar Pahariya dated Janhvi Kapoor. It has been reported that Sara Ali Khan is the leading lady in Sky Force, along with Nimrat Kaur. However, their names are not present in the announcement video shared today by the makers.
