The Pakistani army commander asks Utkarsh’s character if he has any last wishes.
To which, he said: “Allah se yeh apne liye dua maangna ki mera baap na aaye. Kiyunki agar woh yahan aaye toh tumhare itne chithare hongay.”
It then pans into Sunny Deol’s entry and doing crossing every boundary for his family.
