In an interview with IANS, Gurmeet Choudhary who will be seen depicting the role of an army officer in the film, says, “My father served the army and his motherland for several years. He used to impart training to new recruits.”
The trailer will be launched on August 2, 2018. It is based on the Nathu La military clashes which took place in 1967. The war happened along the Sikkim border. The film will project how the Indian army battled it out with the Chinese forces at the border. The project will be released on September 7, 2018. The venture is a much anticipated project. Earlier, rumours were there that Abhishek Bacchan is also to star in the film but he could not be a part of the film.
