The universe has been so kind for giving me the chance to portray the real-life hero of our Indian Army, Vikram Batra. And I couldn’t be happier to bring you his courageous life story. I want to thank each one of you for being a part of this amazing film. This 3-year long journey has been spectacular and I feel grateful to have the best team by my side. Watch out for our first look!”

On June 19, 1999, they ordered him to recapture Point 5140 in his first major battle. He defeated the enemy but while leaving the base, one of his colleagues lost his legs in an explosion. Vikram went back to save him and was hit by the enemy’s bullet in his chest. He was martyred on the spot. He was honored with Param Vir Chakra, India’s highest and most prestigious award for valor.
