Speaking of the film, John Abraham said, "Attack is a taut, interesting thriller with a strong storyline and a genre that I love! That it is releasing on Independence Day makes it even more exciting. At JA Entertainment, it is our endeavour to push the envelope and produce films that entertain and have something significant to show to the increasingly discerning audience. With Jayanti bhai on board, we are certain that the film will get an excellent release. Also, happy to collaborate with Ajay once again."
The film will see the actor play a lone ranger who is in a race against time as he takes on a rescue mission. According to a statement from the makers of the film, it is a fictional tale, but is based on 'true events' about a hostage crisis.
The film is scheduled for theatrical release on 14 August 2020.
