Shanvi says that she gave the nod to the project majorly because it is based on the Indian Army. "The bravery and valour of the Indian Army have been echoing all over the nation in the past few months. When I was offered the film which talks in depth about the Army, I strongly felt that I have to take it up. I'm yet to hear the complete narration of the script."
