Purab Kohli got opportunity to spend some time with the jawans of the Sikh Regiment in Mumbai. He met them a weekend ago as a feature of the prep for his part in movie producer Nikhil Advani’s next.
A source near the Purab says it was an enhancing background for him. Purab interacted with around 12 jawans, and heard their stories. Some jawans had even fought the Kargil War in 1999. The actor spent time observing them in their surroundings, their speech, dialect, body language and parading skills,” adds the source.
Discussing the experience, Purab says, “There is something about meeting defence personnel. It stirs you from inside. I met some jawans from the Sikh Regiment. They are posted in Mumbai. I was intrigued when they told me that they prefer being at the Indian border, guarding the nation, to enjoying the luxuries of a peaceful posting. I was also surprised to know that some of them had seen my last film, Airlift. They enjoyed the feeling of patriotism in the film.” – CINEWS
