You can see that Karan Johar isn’t just paying a tribute to the life of Usha, but he also pays a homage to other heroes who’ve been unsung and were brought to the fore by some of the films backed by his Dharma Productions. Films like ‘Raazi’ and ‘Shershaah’ were also lauded by the filmmaker.

For the unversed, the story on ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ takes you through the life of a young girl who hides away from the British and runs an underground radio station. This was done after the British banned all forms of communication so as to curb the uprising during the Quit India movement. The immense bravery that Usha displays by running that underground radio station and helping messages reach the leader and other necessary people is exemplary. However, her story remains untold and through Sara Ali Khan’s portrayal one hopes to learn a part of history that we had never heard or read about before.
