Mukul Dev features in a film based on the life of revolutionary Kartar Singh Sarabha (1896–1915) who was hanged by the British in the Lahore conspiracy case. Sarabha inspired Bhagat Singh to revolt against the British rule. Directed by Kavi Raz, the film aims at giving the Indian revolutionary recognition and respect.

"It's a legendary character. It's a very exciting project. The cast is an ensemble and is from various parts of the world. We have a very exciting team and the project is legendary stuff. It has got to be handled with care. I am very excited about the project," Mukul said.

"The audience will love it and it would give a hero, the much-needed recognition and respect. I am waiting for the audience to celebrate this figure," he added.

Directed by Kavi Raz, the film revolves around the life of the revolutionary Kartar Singh Sarabha. Kartar along with Bakshish Singh, and five others were hanged by the British in the Lahore Conspiracy Case of November 1915.

Mukul will also star in a film based on the unsung heroes of Indian football. Titled "Barefoot Warriors", the film is about the first national football team of independent India. The story is inspired by the Indian team that played brilliantly at the 1948 London Olympics despite most players playing barefoot, and becoming eligible to participate in the 1950 World Cup.
