How, Vijay with the help of Ranchordas Pagi (Sanjay Dutt) and other 300 local women reconstructed the Indian Air Force Air Base at Bhuj which was next to impossible in the then scenario.
During the Indo Pak War of 1971, the Bhuj Airport was attacked 35 times by Pakistani bombers in 14 days. The entire airport was rebuilt in merely 72 Hours in the leadership of Vijay Karnik wo with the help of Ranchordas Pogi and one more Flight Officer (Ammy Virk).

Sharad Kelkar and Rana Dugupati are quite mature actors and have justified their characters.
Nora Fatehi has not got much opportunity to show her acting talent in the movies. However, she has the opportunity to prove her command over acting in addition to her incredible dance skills. However, it is gathered that Nora Fatehi is replaced by Parineeta Chopra for the character of Heena Rehman.
Since, great actors are there in the movie, expectations of audiences’ increases accordingly. We hope to see a very good performance by the actors.
