Reportedly, ‘Operation Yemen’ is based on the 2015 Operation Raahat when General VK Singh led Indian armed forces evacuated foreign nationals, along with Indian citizens, from Yemen during the Yemeni crisis.

Talking to the portal, Subhas said, “We have been working since 2016 on this project. The cousin of our director Sanjay Sankla was the pilot on this mission. Sanjay Sankla has been a reputed editor and has worked on nearly 95 films. We took 9 months to pen the script. We even got Mission Mangal (2019) writer Nidhi Singh Dharma on board. Our pre-production was nearly done. I wonder where the idea got leaked from. This episode is in the public domain, but we were the first ones to register at the Screenwriters Association (SWA).”

He mentioned that popular actors like Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor have been approached to be a part of this film. “We were only waiting for the actors to sign on the dotted line and come on board. We had also approached Ranbir Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur. We spoke to Vicky Kaushal through his father, Sham Kaushal ji. Vicky liked the subject but his dates were not available. We hope to launch a poster after signing the actors. Akshay ji said he’ll have a narration after returning from London and then decide whether he wants to come on board. He had met Sanjay Sankla. Both have a great relationship, and Sanjay had edited several of his films like Rowdy Rathore (2012).”
