Being the country's biggest youth icon, Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor was keen to meet with the 'men at the border' and immediately jumped at the opportunity to travel to Nahan, Himachal Pradesh , home to the 1 para Batallion, comprising some of iNida's finest commandos.
Taking some time out from his professional commitments, Ranbir spent the day with the Jawans and even got a firsthand look at the challenges and training they have to undergo, having participated in some of the activities himself.
Apart from sharing a meal with them and entertaining them to the hilt, Ranbir participated in some high voltage sniper firing, followed by rock climbing and rappelling, and even a rugby match with the Jawans. Impressively the actor even managed to hit the bull's eye in spite of using a sniper gun for the very first time.
It was a day well spent as the actor had the Jawans on their feet, entertaining them with some of his biggest hits, even as they responded matching step for step. Ranbir's parting shot was saluting the men who he called "The Real Heroes".
