Sunny Deol, who played the role of Major Kuldip Singh Chandpuri in J P Dutta's 1997 film Border, shared a still from the film and accompanied the post with the caption: "Salute to all the men and women who do so much for us."
Meanwhile, actress Richa Chadha shared a throwback picture of her nanaji, who was a "freedom fighter and a surgeon" in the Indian army. "It's Indian Army Day. "In these times of global jingoism, I miss his quiet dignity, his peaceful strength and his commitment to the cause of humanity," read an excerpt from Richa's post.
It's Indian Army Day. This is my Nanaji. LT Col Dharamveer Prasad. He was a freedom fighter and then a surgeon in the Indian army post independence. He fought all the wars till 1971 and even took a bullet in the leg in one. I miss him, he passed away in 2007. In these times of global jingoism, I miss his quiet dignity, his peaceful strength and his commitment to the cause of humanity. Love you Nana Ji
In his post, Sidharth Malhotra made a reference to his forthcoming film, an untitled biopic of late Captain Vikram Batra, who died in the Kargil war and received the Param Vir Chakra posthumously. Sidharth wrote: "The fact that I get to wear their uniform and be a part of a story that talks, salutes and bows down to their journey is an honour. Thank you for your service. Jai Hind!"
