Akshaye Khanna's State Of Siege: Temple Attack is based on which incident that shook the country?
SOS: Temple Attack is based on the September 2002 attack that took place at the Akshardham Temple in Gujarat. The series unveils many untold events related to the attack and showcases how the NSG commandos fought off the terrorists who sieged the temple.
On 24th September 2002, two armed men entered the Swaminarayan temple by trespassing the security and started an open fire at the visitors and pilgrims. As a result of the carnage, around 30 people were killed and more than 80 were injured. Brave NSG commandos took over and ended the siege, rescuing those held hostage by the terrorists.
In State Of Siege: Temple Attack movie, Akshaye Khanna will be seen playing the role of Major Hanut Singh. In the trailer, it is shown that he decides to 'compromise' the mission; however, he manages to save the temple and the hostages with his team eventually.
Khanna has already played the role on an Indian soldier in his other films, making the fans even more eager for his groundbreaking performance in SOS: Temple attack.

SOS: Temple Attack is produced by Contiloe Pictures. While speaking to a leading daily, CEO Abhimanyu Singh said "Very rarely have we highlighted the role of the Indian commandos in neutralizing attacks by our enemies. The State Of Siege series was designed to give their perspective and contribution. The success of State of Siege: 26/11 encouraged us to tell these stories further and the obvious extension for us was to chronicle the events of the temple attack that shook the nation. Akshaye's demeanor and craft make him the perfect fit to lead this narrative, and we're more than excited to be partnering with ZEE5 again on this one."
