Rana Daggubati who is popularly known for his exemplary performance in “Baahubali” recently wrote a letter to the President Pranab Mukherjee. The actor wanted to draw attention to the utmost need to recognize the nation’s unsung heroes.
The actor stressed that people should know about tales of bravery and become aware of the sacrifices of our unsung heroes.
In his upcoming film, “The Ghazi Attack" he will be seen portraying the role of Lieutenant Commander Arjun Varma, who was part of a mission conducted by the Indian Navy against the Pakistani naval force in 1971. It is believed that Arjun remained underwater for 18 days during the war.
During the course of working on the film, Rana met some real navy officers who were on board. Hearing their experiences moved the actor to write a letter to the President.
Talking about it, Rana said in a statement: "Post 'Ghazi', a civilian like me has understood a lot about victorious battles that have been fought by all our armed forces on the borders so as to keep us safe."
"As a civilian I did not know about these victorious tales and like me there are many others who did not know much about it. To us, it's a letter to acknowledge these heroes and make sure we know more about these unsung heroes and their tales of victory."
His movie rekindles the mystery of what caused the sinking of the PNS Ghazi. It also features Atul Kulkarni, Kay Kay Menon, Taapsee Panu and late veteran actor Om Puri.
