Two armed terrorists had attacked Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar on September 24, 2002, killing 33 people, including a National Security Guard (NSG) commando and two Gujarat police officers, and injuring 80 people. The two terrorists identified as Ashraf Ali Mohammed Farooq and Murtaza HafizYasin were gunned down by NSG commandos.
State of Siege: Temple Attack is directed by Ken Ghosh, known for movies like Ishq Vishk and Fida. He said in a statement, “State of Siege: Temple Attack is not just a film. It is a tribute to the NSG commandos of India who are always ready to risk their lives to protect us. As a son of a naval officer, I have grown up in awe of our armed forces. In State of Siege: Temple Attack, we have tried our best to give a fitting tribute to our heroes, and I cannot wait for the release of the film on ZEE5.”
The film is a follow-up to State of Siege: 26/11, a miniseries that revolved around the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
