‘State of Siege: 26/11’ was among the early web series to be released as the pandemic hit the world last year. It was scripted as a tribute to the brave Indian soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country in a deadly terrorist attack on Delhi’s Parliament in 2001 and went on to become one of the most talked about shows.
Earlier this year, ZEE5 announced a film as an extended tribute to the Indian soldiers, continuing the legacy of the Siege series. Now, the original film titled ‘State of Siege: Temple Attack’, inspired by true events, is set for its premiere this week on July 9.
Director Ken Ghosh said: “This is not just a film, it is a tribute to the NSG [National Security Guard] commandos of India who are always ready to risk their lives to protect us.
