To promote their upcoming film Force 2, actor John Abraham and the makers of the film plan to pay tribute to the “unsung heroes” of the country by launching a petition seeking recognition for them.
The team of Force 2 will visit Amar Jawan Jyoti memorial in Delhi to voice their request and spread awareness. They will launch a petition which will then be submitted to the President.
“There are many unrecognised and forgotten martyrs from various intelligence agencies who need to gain recognition, if not get celebrated. Our story is inspired from true life events and that’s what makes Force 2 even more credible,” said Abraham.
“It’s disheartening that these people put their lives at stake without giving second thoughts to whether their efforts or sacrifice will ever be recognised. Our petition is focused on giving a tribute to these unsung heroes, who should also be considered as hero,” he said.
Director Abhinay Deo said that everybody must recognise and acknowledge Indian heroes.
Producer Vipul Shah said the recent surgical attacks in Pakistan were possible only due to the information provided by the intelligence network.
“We should find means to protect them from the backlash. Political compulsions may keep us away from celebrating such people, but it shouldn’t deter us from respecting their work.”
Also starring Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin, the second instalment of the action-thriller franchise releases on November 18.
