On the show 'Mission Frontline,' film actor, director, and screenwriter Farhan Akhtar got nostalgic about his film 'Lakshya.' Farhan had a conversation with Col Bheemaiah P.S. (Commanding officer, 3 Rashtriya Rifle Sena Medal Bar).
On the show, filmmaker Rohit Shetty and actor Farhan Akhtar will appear together. Both will spend a day in Srinagar with the Rashtriya Rifle soldiers and the J&K Police Special Operations Group.
Farhan will be seen going through rigorous weapon training, which will include static firing, neutralising terrorists in the jungle, and a search and destroy drill with the Rashtriya Rifles.
Farhan got nostalgic about his film 'Lakshya' while interacting with Col Bheemaiah P.S.
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 Akhtar
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.
