JODHPUR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday congratulated the makers of the recently released film ‘The Vaccine War’ for highlighting the importance of scientists and science.

PM Modi, who addressed a rally after unveiling the development projects in Jodhpur said, “I have heard that a film called ‘The Vaccine War’ has been released, which depicts the relentless efforts of our country’s scientists who worked day and night, dedicating themselves to the cause of fighting COVID in their labs, like sages. In this film, all these aspects have been portrayed. I congratulate the makers of this film for highlighting the importance of scientists and science.”

Helmed by Vivek Agnihotri, the film starred Nana Patekar, Anupam Kher and Pallavi Joshi in the lead roles.

‘The Vaccine War’ narrates the tale of the triumph of scientists and 130 crore Indian citizens who fought the battle against COVID-19. It gave a glimpse of the activities of scientists involved with the BBV152 vaccine, also known as Covaxin, developed by Bharat Biotech in partnership with the Indian Council of Medical Research – National Institute of Virology.

Nana Patekar delivered a few inspiring dialogues in the film. One of them is, “This is a war and we are all soldiers. From today, we should see only the fish’s eye just like Arjun.”

Earlier in August, special screenings of ‘The Vaccine War’ were conducted in the US under the India for Humanity Tour. (ANI)
