Talking to a news portal, Siddharth shared, “This is the war that is often heralded as the only ‘just war’ in history because it was fought to save human lives and free a nation. Brig Mehta’s fascinating account resonated with us deeply, and we instinctively knew that Ishaan would be ideal to play him. Ishaan’s raw, youthful energy perfectly complements Brig Mehta’s valour. His acting chops paired with Raja’s sensitivity towards the subject, knowledge of every facet of this war and panache for largescale action dramas, makes this all the more compelling a story for us to take to the screen!”
