Major is based on the life of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who lost his life during the 26/11 terror attack in 2008. Adivi will be playing the titular role in the film. The movie is scheduled to hit the big screens on 2 July.
The film is jointly produced by Sony Pictures Films, Mahesh Babu's GMB Entertainment and A+S movies. It also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Saiee Manjrekar and Prakash Raj.
Last year, on 27 November, Mahesh Babu had shared a look test video of Adivi. The date also marked the 12th death anniversary of Unnikrishnan.
