Adding, she wrote, “Mama, Ruby, and I shall be ever so grateful to our 64 Assault Engineer Regiment family for immortalising the good work and the legacy of Papa’s service to the land and forces on the prestigious occasion of their 49th Raising Day. As Papa would’ve customarily roared from the parade grounds, Agrani Ajay!! Jai Hind.”

Although his tank was hit on several occasions, he continued to remain in effective command and by several acts of personal gallantry inspired his men to fight courageously. Major Bhupinder Singh displayed great determination and courage under heavy enemy fire by continuing to fight with only two tanks after most of his tanks had been disabled For those unknown, the place is also special for the actor as she completed her 5th, 6th and 7th standard in a school which really laid the foundation for where she is today.
