‘Mission Frontline”s Farhan Akhtar gets nostalgic about his film ‘Lakshya’.

Colonel Bheemaiah P.S. (Commanding officer, 3 Rashtriya Rifle Sena Medal Bar) speaks with Farhan.

The show will feature Rohit Shetty and Farhan Akhtar. They will both spend the day with the Rashtriya Rifle soldiers and the Special Operations Group of the J&K Police.

As part of Farhan’s training, he will experience static firing and neutralizing terrorists in the jungle, as well as search and destroy drills with Rashtriya Rifles.

Farhan mentions Lakshya to Col Bheemaiah P.S. when interacting with him.

He says: “2003 is when we shot ‘Lakshya’ so before that I spent a lot of time in Ladakh mainly but now when I am here, I really feel very nostalgic about it. The time that we spent because you became a family and I think of them dearly today and I miss them a lot.”

During the weapon handling and firing training Farhan said: “Every time you hold this weapon in your hand, it definitely does something to you. When you know the reason behind using this weapon and also in what situation, it fills you with a sense of responsibility.”

During the grueling drills, Farhan also reveals what amazed him and says, “From training with them, to being their buddy, to sharing stories, I’ve learned this one thing. It is difficult to sum up the life of a soldier in words. I had to live a day in their life. It’s a day that is going to become a part of my stories.”

He also said: “I have had an exceptionally interesting experience and I’m really glad I got to do this. It really opened my mind”.

Discover+ will start airing ‘Mission Frontline’ on January 20.
