Speaking of his character, Vicky Kaushal, who plays the role of an Indian army official in the film, in an interview with news agency PTI last month, said that this film will be something "new for the audience." "I learnt a lot when I read the script. I was very excited to tell the story. There is always an adrenaline rush to play a character like this. I was all charged up to do it right. We have seen films on war and military earlier, but this film will be new for the audience," said Vicky Kaushal.
During an interview with news agency PTI, earlier this month, film's director Aditya Dhar clarified that "there is nothing anti-Pakistan" in the film and said: "The film is about how Indian Army fought terrorism. Our focus in the film is about how to fight against terrorism. There is nothing anti-Pakistan. We are not fighting against any individual or country; we are fighting against the cross-border terrorism that is happening. We have shown a balanced perspective."
