Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan was responsible for saving several lives during the time of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. The brave NSG commando ended up sacrificing his life while doing his duties towards the nation. Major Sandeep was also posthumously honoured with the Ashok Chakra, which is India’s highest military honour.
Mahesh Babu, although has just donned the hat of a producer for the film, says it would have been an honour for him to play the lead role. “It would have been an honour to do so. I am looking forward to seeing Adivi in the film,” said Mahesh Babu in an interview recently.
