NEW DELHI: Friday war has begun with three major releases at the box office namely, The Ghazi Attack, Irada and Running Shaadi.

Out of the three, the much awaited has been The Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati's flick 'The Ghazi Attack' which narrates the story of Pakistani submarine PNS Ghazi which sank during Indo-Pakistan sea battle of 1971.

Apart from them, the war-drama also features Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and late Om Puri. Directed by Sankalp Reddy, the disclaimer at the beginning clearly states that it is just inspired by historical event and is a work of fiction. Rana underwemt intensive underwater training and a time came when he was craving for sunlight."At the end of the 18th day, I was gasping for sunlight. When you haven't felt the sun on your face and you've been breathing recycled air for months, getting on the surface of water and on land is like freedom at last! How I missed the beautiful sunlight," said Rana to IANS.
Another movie hitting the screens today is Amit Sadh, Taapsee Pannu starrer-'Running Shaadi'. Shoojit Sircar produced romcom is a story of three characters who run matrimonial service to help couples elope. If you want a joyous ride this weekend, Running Shaadi can be considered.
"Until now you have seen me doing rough and tough roles, so now I want to see if I can also make the audience laugh. I am pretty sure this film will be able to bring a smile on everyone's face," told the Pink actress to IANS. The common element that connects Running Shaadi and The Ghazi Attack is Taapsee Pannu who also has 'Naam Shabana' in her pocket.
