Finally finding time to watch it today :) #HighJosh, the Defence Minister tweeted tagging actors Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam and the film’s director Aditya Dhar and producer Ronnie Screwvala.
Yes, #HighJosh, Sitharaman tweeted. The Defence Minister also obliged for selfies with children and public at the mall.
“How is the josh?” is the popular line from the movie, based on the 2016 Indian Army’s surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan as a retaliation for the Uri attack that claimed the lives of 17 army personnel.
Sitharaman had on January 16 met the cast and crew of the film on the occasion of Army Day.
Film’s stars Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, director Aditya Dhar and producer Ronnie Screwvala were part of the meeting that took place at Army Chief General Bipin Rawat’s ‘at home’ function.
