‘February 14, 2019’ was a dark day in the history of independent India as the Pulwama terror attack shook the nation to its core. The gruesome terror attack which claimed the lives of 40 Indian soldiers, not only evoked the nation’s anger but also broke many families.
To pay homage to the brave hearts and the NIA team who painstakingly investigated the attack, SonyLIV brings the never-seen-before story with Pulwama Key No. 1026, helmed by National award winning director – Onir. The eight-episodic series is based on award-winning author and journalist Rahul Pandita’s book – ‘The Lover Boy of Bahawalpur’. The series is a tribute to all those martyrs whose dreams were blown to smithereens the minute the suicide bomber’s car hit the bus.
