The additional shooting of the movie took place in October 2017 at the Dras sector in Jammu and Kashmir to give real life experience of the Tawang valley during the 1962 war.

Shooting locations


Suratgarh is a small town in Sri Ganganagar district of Rajasthan and is in the close proximity of Radcliffe Line demarcated between India and Pakistan. Suratgarh is also famous for its Air Force Base Station which provides a strategic advantage to India over neighbouring Pakistan. It was chosen for the shooting the first schedule of the film because of its resemblance with the village of Punjab in undivided India back in 1921 where Joginder Singh lived his childhood and adolescence until he joined the British Indian Army.

Dras, a beauteous town on National Highway 1D or popularly known as Srinagar-Leh Highway came into prominence owing to Pakistani incursions during the Kargil War in the summer of 1999, but it is also the second coldest inhabited place in the world. The second schedule took place terrain of Dras and was wrapped up by the end of October 2017.
