Sidharth Malhotra has received much appreciation for portraying the war hero, however, here we talk about Kiara Advani who plays Dimple Cheema. Her story is worth knowing as Cheema is an unsung hero, who fought for her love and faced every obstacle that came in her life with utmost strength and valour.
Cheema represents a modern-day Indian woman who makes their own choices and stands by them proudly. Her decision to remain unmarried and her faith and belief shows her strength of character.
Advani met Cheema in Chandigarh before shooting the film to understand her journey. After listening to her story from her, Advani began the shootings.
