    • This isn’t the first time that Captain Vikram Batra has been portrayed in a movie. He appeared in 2003 film L.O.C. Kargil as well and was portrayed by Abhishek Bachchan.

    • The movie portrays a Pakistani troop threatening Batra over the radio. Batra himself narrated this himself in his famous interview with Barkha Dutt recalling, “Oh Shershaah, you’ve come. Don’t try to come up, otherwise you’ll have a tough time… and that was the time they gave us a challenge and my guys they… they went wild.”
    • The film also shows Pakistani troops asking the Indians to give them Madhuri Dixit. This has been previously confirmed by others who served in the unit.
