After launching his production house Action Hero Films in April this year, Vidyut Jammwal has finally announced his first film titled IB 71 under the banner. The film, produced in association with Reliance Entertainment, will be helmed by National award-winning director Sankalp Reddy.

The actor shared his good news through his Twitter page as he revealed the title and director of the movie.

Jammwal also shared a note on this special occasion as a debut producer. He wrote, "Directed by Sankalp Reddy, the upcoming film is the banner's first collaboration with the creative giant Reliance Entertainment. I write this with the utmost gratitude and sincerely to convey my love for your blessings and support. IB 71 is a step towards fulfilling the promise of quality filmmaking. This project is a result of teamwork and belief. I seek your support for it forever. Thank you for being a part of my journey. Wishing you the forward move you've hoped for."

According to some news reports, IB 71 is an espionage thriller inspired by the 1971 Indo-Pak war. The film will reportedly explore how Indian intelligence officers outwitted the Pakistani army during the war.

Interestingly, Reddy's directorial debut The Ghazi Attack (2017) was also based on the 1971 Indo-Pak war. The critically acclaimed bilingual film was released in Telugu and Hindi and won the National award for Best Feature Film in Telugu.

The makers are yet to reveal the cast and other crew for the film. IB 71 is expected to begin filming by the end of this year.

On the acting front, Jammwal will be next seen in the action films Sanak and Khuda Haafiz Chapter II.
