“At Dharmatic Entertainment, we have always taken pride in bringing forth stories that are told from the heart and Ae Watan Mere Watan exemplifies that. Kannan and Darab have taken inspiration from a poignant point of India’s history and woven a rich story with a strong emotional core that is further enriched by Sara’s exceptional portrayal of a young revolutionary. For decades radio has thrived as a medium to inform, engage and entertain the masses, playing a crucial role in encouraging discourse,” Karan Johar said in a statement.

The film makers have announced the release date coinciding with World Radio Day. The movie will also feature Emraan Hashmi in a pivotal cameo while Sara’s mother, Amrita Singh, was also seen on the sets.
