War Chhod Na Yaar[5] (transl. Quit the war, dude) is a 2013 Indian Hindi-language war comedy film directed and written by Faraz Haider and dialogues are written by Deepak Kingrani. The film was announced on 30 March 2013[5] with a launch party at Novotel Hotel in the presence of the lead actors, Sharman Joshi, Soha Ali Khan, Javed Jaffery, Sanjai Mishra, Dalip Tahil and Mukul Dev who play important characters in the film.[6]

The treatment of the humour in War Chhod Na Yaar has many layers; mostly situational, sometimes spoofy, sometimes slapstick, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, and sometimes even over-the-top. The movie was produced by AOPL Entertainment Pvt Ltd and was released on 11 October 2013.


The film begins with Captain Rajveer Singh (Sharman Joshi) and Captain Quereshi (Javed Jaffrey) are captains of India and Pakistan playing cards with their partners at Indo-Pak border. Suddenly bomb explodes. Then the film flashbacks into seventeen hours before. At that time the Defense minister of India called Ruth Dutta (Soha Ali Khan), the reporter of GBC news to talk about some important top secret. He reveals that after two days war will be declared between India and Pakistan. Fourteen hours before, Defense minister of Pakistan with Pakistani General contacts Defense minister of China for some help. Defense minister of China tells that he will attack New Delhi with a nuclear bomb . At Indo-Pak border Pakistan army are becoming very lazy. Then don't want to pay attention to commander Khan(Sanjai Mishra). Captain Rajveer Singh (Sharman Joshi) and Captain Quereshi (Javed Jaffery) are battalion captains of India and Pakistan – two countries forever embroiled in conflict and turmoil with each other. However, on the actual battle-field, Raj and Quereshi and his troops form an unlikely friendship and camaraderie, reared on a love for conversations and playing antakshari(a game) of Hindi film songs and non-veg food. Midst them, arrives Ruth Dutta (Soha Ali Khan), an ambitious TV reporter, assigned to make a documentary on the lives of the soldiers of these two sides, as reported from on-ground. But when war is announced between these two countries, the easy friendship between the two sides is tested and conspiracy theories are hatched – all with hilarious results. In the end, the question which haunts everybody is : why the war and to what extent ?



Mumbai, 12 August 2013: War Chhod Na Yaar is Faraz Haider's maiden venture and he's leaving no stone unturned in making the film as authentic as possible. A major portion of the film is shot in the deserts of Rajasthan so that the viewer can be as close to a war like zone as possible. "We did not want to shoot in a studio or recreate a set because I wanted to keep it really authentic," Haider said.
