The actor and screenwriter Farhan Akhtar and filmmaker Rohit Shetty will be seen together on the show ‘Mission Frontline’ they both are going to spend the day with the Rashtriya Rifle soldiers and J&K Police’s Special Operations Group in Srinagar.
Farhan is going to participate in various hardcore weapon training with Rashtriya Rifles. He will do training in static firing, neutralising terrorists in the jungle, along with a search and destroy drill. Farhan got nostalgic about his film ‘Lakshya’ while talking to Col Bheemaiah P.S.
Farhan recalled and said: “2003 is when we shot ‘Lakshya’ so before that I spent a lot of time in Ladakh mainly but now when I am here, I really feel very nostalgic about it. The time that we spent because you became a family and I think of them dearly today and I miss them a lot.”
Actor Farhan while training on weapon handling and firing said: “Every time you hold this weapon in your hand, it definitely does something to you. When you know the reason behind using this weapon and also in what situation, it fills you with a sense of responsibility.”
Farhan also mentioned what amazed him when he was doing the rigorous drills and confessed, “From training with them, to be their buddy, to sharing stories, I’ve learned this one thing. It is difficult, to sum up, the life of a soldier in words. I had to live a day in their life. It’s a day that is going to become a part of my stories.”
He further added: “I have had an exceptionally interesting experience and I’m really glad I got to do this. It really opened my mind”.
‘Mission Frontline’ will be commencing from 20th January 2022.
