On this special occasion, the actors even expressed their love and gratitude towards the jawans through videos.

Sidharth also practiced carrying an injured soldier on the shoulder, which was monitored by his mentor in the film — Manoj. After several rounds of drills, which also done by Rakul Preet and Pooja, the actors learnt about the maintenance of guns and how to use them.
