During a global Promotion of the film, Randeep, who was asked about the takeaway from the movie for global audiences, said:“I have taken the route of telling the story of the armed revolution – especially overseas – for a country like India where the image of India that we know of is one of non-violence.

“Therefore, it should be interesting for people across the world to watch this and hence I made it for the international audience in that sense. So that they get to know about India more than just Mahatma Gandhi,” he said.
