The families agreed on meeting the star cast of the film, later they shared their experiences with Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam.
The two actors, who spent a considerable amount of time with the kin of the martyred soldiers, were visibly emotional post the meeting. Vicky said, “This was the first time in my life that I got to meet the family members of the Bravehearts, who laid down their lives in the line of duty. I didn’t know what to say to them; all I could do was just hold their hands and bow my head in gratitude and respect. A child from one of the families, who had lost his elder brother in the Uri attack, when asked what he wants to become when he grows up replied, ‘Fauji’. I salute the spirit of not just our armed forces but also of their brave families.”
