JP Dutta’s much-awaited patriotic film Paltan is all set to hit the screens this weekend on September 6. Starring Arjun Rampal, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood, Abdul Quadir Amin, Sonal Chauhan, Harshvardhan Rane, Gurmeet Choudhary, Rohit Roy, Siddhant Kapoor, Luv Sinha and Dipika Kakar in prominent roles, Paltan is based on Indo-Sino war of 1962. With Paltan, Filmmaker JP Dutta will be returning to the silver screen after a hiatus of 12 years and was last seen taking the director’s seat for Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-starrer Umrao Jaan.
However, J.P Dutta’s Paltan will not get a solo release at the box office. The film is scheduled to clash with Imtiaz Ali and Ekta Kapoor’s film Laila Majnu that will launch newcomers Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri into the Bollywood industry. Looking at the hype around Paltan, the film is expected to earn Rs 2-3 crore on opening day.
