NEW DELHI: Rana Daggubati, who will be seen in a movie based on true events from the 1971 war, when Pakistani submarine Ghazi attempted to destroy the Indian aircraft carrier, INS Vikrant, is keen to buy Bajaj V bike as a memorabilia from the film.
Rana wishes to keep a slice of history with him as the bike has its parts made from the metal of indigenous aircraft carrier INS Vikrant.
Rana shares "The INS Vikrant was one of the most celebrated war ships in the Indian Navel fleet. Bajaj making motorcycles from the metal is like a token of honor that we can all have as citizens."
The film will see him playing Naval officer Lieutenant Commander Arjun Varma, who is said to have remained underwater for 18 days during the war.
Rana met many naval officers, especially those on board the ship, while preparing for the role.
Also starring Taapsee Pannu, Kay Kay Menon and Atul Kulkarni, ‘The Ghazi Attack’ releases on February 17.
