It seems that one of the netizens who came across the first look of Vicky Kaushal as Sam Manekshaw noticed some errors in the photo and also spoke about it on Twitter. He also asked producer Ronnie Screwvala to research on the subject before he takes the film further. The said tweet read, “Will request @adgpi / @atahasnain53 Sir and other Vererans who got a chance to serve under / serve with the great #SamSaheb to come forward and assist @vickykaushal09 / @RonnieScrewvala get our FieldMarshal persons right. WillB great if @RonnieScrewvala reaches out to them.”

Followed by this, Rtd. Lt Gen. Syed Ata Hussain too took to the platform to respond to it where he expressed that they should have consulted the military officials before finalizing the first look and details of the film. He said, “Would love it if consulted. Lt Gen Deepinder Singh, his MA, is there to give everything on him. Vicky Kaushal, for starters is wearing wrong colour badges of rank. Sam was a Gurkha, never wore brass, always black badges. I am proud to wear that too being a Garhwali Bhulla.”

After his tweet, many netizens took to Twitter asking the producers and even the actor Vicky Kaushal to learn more on Sam Manekshaw and the Indian military ranks before they decide to move ahead with the film:
