    During the course of working on the film, Rana met some real navy officers who were on board. Hearing their experiences moved the actor to write a letter to the President. Rana was quoted as saying, "Post 'Ghazi', a civilian like me has understood a lot about victorious battles that have been fought by all our armed forces on the borders so as to keep us safe. As a civilian I did not know about these victorious tales and like me there are many others who did not know much about it. To us, it's a letter to acknowledge these heroes and make sure we know more about these unsung heroes and their tales of victory."
