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.

Farhan also spoke about weapon handling and firing training and 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 Akhtar

Farhan also discussed what amazed him during the rigorous drills, saying,


From training with them, to being 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

- Farhan Akhtar

He also said,


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 premiere on January 20.
