J.P. Dutta who has helmed LOC Kargil and Border in the past, told Deccan Chronicle, “The emotions we are dealing with here are more complex and varied. It's about the relationship the soldiers leave behind and how it affects the families. Border dealt with the soldiers' love interests, but Paltan will also showcase their siblings and parents. It will also display the soldiers' brotherhood, as they save each other when at war."
