Glorifying the bravery of our armed forces is a good thing. I say do not distort the original story and not put any songs like other ordinary movies."
Please don't put any songs in the movie. Just a suggestion," read another post.One fan wrote: "#SanjayLeelaBhansali Good decision, Sanjay ji..my best wishes.
"Modi ji giving employment to Bollywood for sure... Bollywood biggies... go (and) grab topics... Article 370, Ram Mandir, Triple Talaaq, Citizen Amendment bill, Balakot... Topics milte rahenge."
