Kandahar Deal With?
The events of the film take place in 2013, and they are depicted from a perspective that has never been seen on film before. John Harris portrays a CIA agent on a dangerous operation in Afghanistan, and he is the film’s main character. The film shows his escape from the special forces and his arrival at a location some 640 kilometres from Kandahar in Afghanistan. The official plot summary reads as follows:
“Tom Harris, a covert CIA operative, is stuck in the middle of Afghanistan‘s most dangerous region. When his name and mission become public knowledge due to a data leak, he and his Afghan translator must make their way to an extraction point in Kandahar while remaining hidden from the elite special forces squad tasked with finding them.”
Kandahar Cast And Main Lead
In addition to Gerard Butler, the picture also features Navid Ngahban, who plays an Afghan translator who is sent to the same operation as Harris. With Butler, the viewers will be able to see him throughout the whole film. He is most known for his roles in the remake Aladdin and the TV programmes 24 and Mistresses, as well as the film Homeland.
Indian actor Ali Fazal belongs to the tribe of Kandahar. His breakout performances in Victoria & Abdul and Murder on the Nile made him a household name in the United States. The cast also features Travis Fimmel, Bahador Foladi, Olivia-Mai Barrett, and Nina Toussaint-White, among others. At this moment, that is all we know about Kandahar’s cast members.
