Shah Rukh Khan will play a fauji in his next home production, just on a bigger scale. Red Chillies Entertainment’s next film will be based on Indian Army and Indian Air Force’s Operation Khukri in Africa. A Mumbai Mirror report suggests that this is among the most expensive projects Shah Rukh’s production house has undertaken.

What is Operation Khukri?

Operation Khukri was carried out in a tropical forest in Sierra Leone, West Africa in 2000. It was a mission to rescue around 223 peacekeepers of India who were sent to Sierra Leone by United Nations to help the government there in tackling Revolutionary United Front (RUF), a rebel group. Major (now Lt Col) Harinder Sood led the operation and around 120 IAF officers were flown from Indian to Africa for the same. The team was able to rescue all the peacekeepers.
