The Ae Watan Mere Watan teaser shows Sara in a retro look from the pre-independence era. She is seen in a sari, pulling down all the curtains in a room before sitting down to assemble a radio-like device. After setting it up, she says, ‘The British feel they have the Leave India movement. Lekin azad awazein qaid nahi hoti. Ye ha Hindustan ki awaz, Hindustan me kahin se, kahin pe Hindustan mein (Free voices cannot be imprisoned. This is the voice of Hindustan, somewhere in the land).” Soon her speech is interrupted by a loud banging on the door and a shocked look covers her face.

She shares her excitement about being part of the film, Sarah said in a press statement: “I am so excited and honored that Prime Video and Dharmatic Entertainment have given me the opportunity to be a part of a film that I truly believe deserves to be told. As an actor, and especially as an Indian, I am proud to portray a character who exudes courage, strength and bravery.”

She added: “It’s a great privilege to be working with Kannan Iyer, sir, as he himself is so passionate and emotionally invested in this story. And while of course writing a character is a big challenge which is vastly different from anything I’ve done before.” It’s a project I’m going to work very hard on. And most importantly, I’m going to cherish every day that I get to play an enigmatic freedom fighter.”

According to the description, Ae Watan Mere Watan follows the intrepid journey of a student in Bombay who becomes a freedom fighter. Set against the background of the Quit India Movement in 1942, the film tells the story of the courage, patriotism, sacrifice and ingenuity of India’s youth.

Producer Karan Johar also said the film is “an attempt to bring to the public a lesser known chapter of Indian history” of the independence struggle. “Directing this story inspired by true events from the very precarious times of India’s freedom struggle is a sense of immense pride for me, and I am grateful to Prime Video and Dharmatic Entertainment for this opportunity. Ae Watan Mere Watan pays tribute to the priceless contributions of fearless heroes to India’s struggle for independence. It’s my first time working with Sara Ali Khan and I’m excited to see her shape into this character,” added director Kannan.

Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Prime Video, said of the under-production of Amazon Original Movie, “As we celebrate India’s 74th Republic Day, it is an honor to pay tribute to the unsung warriors of India’s freedom struggle. Ae Watan Mere Watan is a story inspired by true events, and will see the coming together of some of the most creative minds of our time. We are very excited that Sara Ali Khan is starring in this movie; she has really delved into the character of the young freedom fighter. We are sure that Kannan Iyer’s directorial vision and Darab and Kannan’s impassioned writing style will evoke a sense of patriotism and determination among audiences not only in India but around the world.”
