Randeep Hooda, who was widely acclaimed for his role in Sarbjit, also shared a still from Battle Of Saragarhi last year.
Randeep also told news agency PTI: "There have been lot of ups and downs. But that's a part of filmmaking. The theme of the film is 'Soora so pahchaniye, je lade deen ke het, purja-purja kat mare, kabhu na chhade khet' (Only he is brave who fights for the cause of the poor. He may be cut into pieces and may be killed, but he should not leave the field). This is the saying of Guru Gobind Singh that they do not abandon the post (battleground). Similarly, we are not abandoning the film. We are going to make it happen."
Randeep was last seen in Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma's Sultan. Battle Of Saragarhi, which also stars veteran actors Rekha and Naseeruddin Shah, will release later this year.
