Abhishek Sharma says, “I'm glad to collaborate with John on this film. His involvement as an actor and a producer adds great value and credibility to my vision.”

Having established himself as someone who would only pick meritorious content and this time we are glad we have been able to zero in on a subject which fits the bill perfectly. This story is one of the resilience and gumption that was shown by our national agencies to achieve one of the most critical achievements of the 20th century for our country. This will be our tribute to those men and women who selflessly serve our country and do not expect any accolades in return.”
