Directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, the series is based around the 1962 India-China war. The show is inspired by true events that happened in November 1962 as it narrates the untold tale of bravery and valour. 

Deol, known for movies such as "Socha Nahin Tha", "Dev D" and "Shanghai", is essaying the role of an army major, leading a battalion in the war epic. 

"It is an untold story of bravery and valour; and yet continues to be relatable to us today. As director, Mahesh Manjrekar has presented a unique view in this war-epic," the 44-year-old actor added

On the work front, the actor was recently seen in the sci-fi thriller series "JL 50" alongside Pankaj Kapur and Piyush Mishra. It revolves around a plane that had vanished decades ago after take-off, which suddenly crash-lands in a remote hill town of present-day West Bengal.
