Bhuj: The Pride Of India also features Sonakshi Sinha, Parineeti Chopra, Sanjay Dutt, Rana Daggubati and Ammy Virk in pivotal roles. Last year in March, the stars announced their association with the film on social media. Parineeti, who has previously worked with Ajay Devgn in Golmaal Again, shared the news with her fans on Twitter and wrote: ""The most special true story ever."
Sonakshi Sinha, who will play the role of social worker Sunderben Jetha Madharparya in Bhuj: The Pride Of India, shared a collage featuring the film's cast and wrote: "Proud to announce my next film Bhuj: The Pride Of India. Essaying the role of Sunderben Jetha Madharparya, my first portrayal of a real life character, in a film based on a real life incident. Big shoes to fill and I'll give it my best! Wish us luck."
Ajay, in his post, mentioned how Vijay Karnik convinced 300 women from the nearby village to reconstruct the air-strip during the war so that the Air Force officers could land safely.
