Ae Watan Mere Watan is a fictional tale that tells the story of an underground radio station that changed the course of India’s freedom struggle.

It also pays homage to the several unsung heroes whose patriotism, sacrifice, and persistence led to the country gaining its independence. The historical thriller will stream in Hindi and will be available with dubs in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
Karan Johar said in a press note about the film, “Ae Watan Mere Watan pays homage to the significant role radio played in uniting the country and fueling the fire in every Indian’s heart, further emboldening the Quit India Movement. The film has been a dream in the making and I am excited to embark on this journey.”
