Speaking about the movie, Vicky said, "When this film came to me and we had this discussion, I was really thrilled and kicked about it because this is one story that I feel that everyone needs to know. It is one of the fantastic army operations that the Indian army has conducted and with great efficiency. I also feel it is a great opportunity and also a responsibility for all of us to portray this story."
Vicky is playing the lead commander-in-chief who led this operation of the surgical strike and led the group of paratroopers post the Uri attack. For this part, Vicky will be undergoing some paramilitary training for a month to bulk up before starting the shoot of the film.
