What if we told you that a plane took off from the Kolkata airport 35 years ago and was never heard of? And what if we added to that this nugget of information – until last week when it crashed? Intrigued, right? So are we.
SonyLIV’s upcoming web series JL50 is set in West Bengal’s Lava. A plane flies over a football field before crashing into a forest. Abhay Deol, Rajesh Sharma and Pankaj Kapur enter the scene and Deol’s character informs Kapur that the plane had actually taken off from Kolkata airport 35 years ago. They had just found it. Kapur makes a crack about how everything in India always happens late. And then Deol drops the news – the plane crashed last week.
SonyLIV is yet to announce the release date.
