Speaking about the look of Havildar Ishar Singh, Mohit Raina shared in a statement, “I have always been fascinated by defense services. As a student of army school, I was always surrounded by men of discipline and repute. It’s an honour to play a Hawaldar who sacrificed life for his motherland. To look the part was the most challenging task, but the research/creative team has done such a wonderful job. Minuscule details were taken care of, hoping the audience likes the first look and accepts the part.”
