War for any country is an unfortunate aspect, on one hand, it involves high logistical efforts whereas on the other it also inculcates the human sacrifice. Indo China war was one such example where even after lagging logistically, the extraordinary courage and valour of the Indian soldiers gave us immensely proud. It was the time when India was a young republic trying to stand on its own feet after years of systematic loot by British and partitioned into two nations. At that moment, China was supposed to be the reliable ally and this trust cost us with a betrayal when on October 20, 1962, India was attacked by China.
The saying of “Hindi-Cheeni Bhai Bhai” demolished brutally when China launched a humongous attack from Aksai-Chin to Arunachal Pradesh simultaneously. In response to this sudden and unexpected attack, the brave Indian soldiers carried out their duties as strong retaliation against enemies. Within this situation, Sikh Regiment 1 of the Indian Army was guarding the border of Tawang sector at Tong pen La, IB Ridge, Bum La against numerous Chinese enemies. Though the Chinese heavily outnumbered us, Subedar Joginder Singh, the commander of the 11th platoon of Delta Company, kept the morale of his men boosted.
The Sikh soldiers stood strong against the Chinese attacks. The number of Sikh soldiers being substantially depleted by each wave of enemy attack, having been run out of ammunition, Subedar Joginder Singh, himself being shot in the thigh, didn’t make him and his men leave the battlefield and continued killing the enemies. All through this, Subedar Joginder Singh displayed his love for the motherland and an unforgettable devotion towards his duty by single-handedly killing dozens of Chinese soldiers with Bayonets. For such exemplary and unprecedented display of valour, Indian Government honoured him with the country’s highest wartime gallantry award – Param Vir Chakra posthumously.
The biopic of this brave war hero, which is a subject of national importance, happens to be the first ever film on a Param Vir Chakra recipient. It has been picked up by a production house named Seven Colors Motion Pictures. This film has been shot in the scorching heat of Rajasthan, tedious heights of Kashmir and treacherous geography of North East India.
Recently, the organization Seven Colors Motion Pictures released the first look of a Punjabi singer and debutant actor named Kulwinder Billa; the Palazzo fame singer has already proven his mettle in singing and is now ready to leave glorious footprints in the field of acting as well. He is playing the role of a Sepoy named Ajaib Singh in the film, and we must admit that he seems to have embraced the soul of the soldier. He is one of the most fortunate singers who gained all praises from the industry’s living legend Gurdas Maan Ji for his singing skills. And from the looks, it seems quite promising for him to gain accolades in acting field as well.
The actor has expressed immense happiness and excitement about being a part of this film, which is a highly anticipated one. When asked about his experience, the actor said, “Subedar Joginder Singh is a very special film. I am extremely grateful to the creator and producer Sumeet Ji for giving me this path-breaking opportunity. I feel quite ecstatic to debut in the movie of such grandeur”.
