The Ghazi Attack will also narrate the story of the naval officer, who guided his team of men to survive underwater for 18 days during the ongoing war.

The Ghazi Attack also releases in Telugu as Ghazi.
Talking about his experience of shooting the film, Rana Daggubati told news agency PTI: "I am a certified deep sea diver with a professional diving licence, but it has been a while since I did my last dive and I so wanted to try my skills. I had to do a few rehearsal rounds before I started the shoot, but it was not so simple because we didn't know what we would encounter. We had to look out for sudden water currents and for pieces of metal. To shoot such scenes one has to be trained specially."
