The makers of the movie had come forward to condemn the recent Pulwama attack and becoming the first ones to announce not releasing the movie in Pakistan. "In the light of the recent attacks, the makers and the actors got together to help out the families of the Pulwama martyrs. It is a sad thing to see the Indian soldiers suffer through this event and the team was keen on doing their bit to support them," a spokesperson of the film unit said in a statement.
