Major teasers were unveiled in Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam on Monday by Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu, actor Salman Khan and Malayalam actor-director Prithviraj Sukumaran. The film is produced by Mahesh and features tribal Sandesh as Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan.
The 1.3-minute teaser tries to answer the question: ‘What does it mean to be a soldier?’ Adivasi Sheshi, who plays the role of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan in the film, explains: “Everyone is a patriot. And the one who protects these patriots is a soldier. “
The Major teaser refreshes our memories of the horrific Mumbai terror attacks in 2008, including the iconic Taj Mahal Hotel in flames. “Attempting to honor the legacy of an unsurpassed hero … the beginning of a major journey !!” Hope you all like it! Salman wrote, “Ishq’s heart-wrenching teaser! Really happy and proud of it. Congratulations to the team .. and salute to Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. #MajorTeaser. Prithviraj tweeted, “Very happy to launch the Malayalam teaser for this super exciting film. Best wishes to the entire team and salute to #MajSandeep!”

Major does not focus only on the sacrifice of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan during the 26/11 attacks. But, it reflects his life and his impressive tenure in the Indian Defense Force. “The world only knows how brave he was and how he died in the last moments. But, what I loved about him was his way of living. 26/11 was not the chapter that defined him. Yes, it was an important chapter. But, when he fought in Kargil, he was captain in the 7th Bihar. He served in Hyderabad. He went to the National Defense Academy. He was a training officer in the National Security Guard. I was interested in how beautifully he lived his life. This is what I wanted to make a film for.
Who was Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan?
“I don’t want to die a simple death. When I leave, the whole country will remember me. “
This is when Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan went to his father, when he joined the NSG. The 26/11 hero died after rescuing the wounded commandos and then climbed the stairs deciding to take the terrorists alone. He was posthumously awarded the Ashoka Chakra.
Prominent among them are Sayy Manjrekar, Sobhita Dhulipala, Prakash Raj, Revathi, Murali Sharma. And it is scheduled to be in theaters on July 2.
