Mahie Gill takes on a powerful role in 1962: The War In The Hills
After a series of memorable performances, actor Mahie Gill will be a part of the upcoming war-epic 1962: The War In The Hills. She will essay the role of Shagun Singh – an honourable army wife and will star against her former co-star Abhay Deol. Incidentally, the two will be seen on-screen together after their work in Dev-D. Directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, 1962: The War In The Hills also stars Sumeet Vyas and Akash Thosar among other actors – details of which will be announced soon. The Hotstar Specials series – 1962: The War in the Hills is inspired by true events and narrates an untold story of bravery and valour and how an army of 125 Indians stood against 3,000 Chinese.
Speaking about the series, Mahie said, “1962: The War In The Hills is a rather special show for me. There was once a time when I applied to and was selected to be a part of our armed forces. And today, I get to play a pivotal role in a war series, not as a soldier but as a proud army wife. I believe that families who support our jawans through everything are also heroes. My character Shagun is not the typical army wife that’s showcased in movies or shows; she is strong and resilient and is fighting her own personal battles.”
Mahie’s character in the series is that of a resilient wife and mother who stands strong even in the most adverse times.
1962: The War in The Hills is slated for release on February 26, 2021 only on Disney+ Hotstar VIP and Disney+ Hotstar Premium.
