Gurmeet says, “It’s a huge honour to work with JP sir. Since my father has served the army and his country for several years, I’ve been fascinated to play a soldier on the big screen. Also I feel bringing the life of an army soldier alive on screen would be a very interesting journey. It’s a gift to my father!”
