Amidst of all the tensions between India and the neighbouring country, Bollywood producers are all set to trademark the titles of few films such as Pulwama Incident, Surgical Strike 2 or Abhinandan. Earlier this year, Bollywood released, Uri: The Surgical Strike and the film was about the 2016 surgical strike India conducted in response to the Uri incident happened in 2016.

Vicky Kaushal’s starrer Uri earned a huge success at the box office. And now Bollywood producers are towards cashing for the recent Pulwama Incident. The incident, that took over the lives of 40 CRPF soldiers on February 14. And later it was avenged with a mid-night airstrike by India 12 days later. Following this, people of India are wondering if Bollywood’s history would repeat itself.

The recent Indian Air Force’s ‘air strike’ on the neighbouring country, led to social media speculations that a film titled Surgical Strike 2 could be made.

The whole incident has given us several different stories of patriotism. Pulwama Incident treated us the life story of CRPF soldiers who got martyred. Airstrike of Indian Force on the neighbouring country that is popularly termed as Surgical Strike 2.0 by the Indians and the comeback of, Wing Commander Abhinandan, who was held captive in the neighbouring country give us a true sense of patriotism.

There has been a trend of nationalistic films being made and it only seems to be getting more intense. As per the reports by HuffPost India, Bollywood producers took no time to grab the opportunity and went up to the office of Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMMPA) at Andheri in Western Mumbai to reserve the ultranationalist movie titles.

It is speculated that five different production companies bid to claim the titles like Pulwama, Surgical Strike 2.0, Balakot, Abhinandan etc. The reports claim that Abundantia and T Series have already taken home some of the titles.
