“Portraying such a powerful character in Ae Watan Mere Watan has been an honor beyond words. To embody the spirit of my character and diving into her consciousness and understanding what motivates and inspires her has been humbling and empowering.” Said actor Sara Ali Khan. “The film is a reminder of the sacrifices made by countless unsung heroes and a testament to the fortitude of the human spirit. I am immensely grateful to director Kannan Iyer, the Dharmatic Entertainment and Prime Video team for the chance to be a part of this cinematic journey. Ae Watan Mere Watan celebrates the indomitable spirit of our nation, especially the youth, and I am looking forward to March 21 and bringing this story to viewers worldwide.”

“From its very genesis, Ae Watan Mere Watan has been a deeply enriching and transformative experience for me as a filmmaker. While inspired by historical events, this film is a homage to the unsung heroes whose extraordinary valor shaped our nation's history,” said director Kannan Iyer. “Through meticulous research, passionate storytelling, and years of dedication, we have strived to authentically capture the spirit of India's freedom struggle and the resilience of its people. Ae Watan Mere Watan is a labour of love and a story with a profound soul, further enriched by Sara’s exceptional performance who has brought depth, nuance, and authenticity to the character.

The movie differs from anything I have done thus far,” said actor Emraan Hashmi. “To essay the role of a political leader amid India’s freedom struggle has been an honor. This is my second film with Kannan, who brings a unique sense of purpose out of passion to this story. It is also my first film with Sara, whose performance will undoubtedly leave the viewers in awe. I am excited that with Prime Video, a story as poignant as this will reach a global audience.”
