The actor announced on Instagram with a video honouring the brave soldiers who laid their lives for the country. He also declared that he is honoured to have the opportunity to play the Param Vir Chakra awardee on screen. The actor spoke to Bollywood Life about the responsibility he carries with the role. He said, "More than interesting, it is more of a responsibility to bring back his glory on screen. He sacrificed his life for our nation, so I can never take this project for granted. I met his parents and his brother - they are so attached to him emotionally. I hope I don't let them down. Apart from the business aspect, I hope we make a film that does justice to Mr. Batra's glory and eventually makes his family happy."
