While we know that Esha and Monica have been cast as Arjun Rampal’s wife and Harshvardhan Rane’s love interest respectively, we are still unsure of what role Dipika will play. The film is set during the time of the Sino-Indian war of 1962 and shall follow the lives of regiment and their relationships.
When asked about the film, JP Dutta had earlier mentioned, “The emotions we are dealing with here are more complex and varied. It’s about the relationship the soldiers leave behind and how it affects the families. “Border” dealt with the soldiers’ love interests, but “Paltan” will also showcase their siblings and parents. It will also display the soldiers’ brotherhood, as they save each other when at war.”
