Randeep Hooda remembers Saragarhi martyrs on 124th anniversary of the Battle of Saragarhi

Randeep Hooda remembered the Saragarhi martyrs on the 124th anniversary of the Battle of Saragarhi. The actor took to his Instagram handle and recalled his shelved film which was also being made in honour of the Saragarhi martyrs.

Randeep shared a picture of his character from the film along with a picture of his visit to the gurudwara made as a memorial and captioned it “the greatest last stands in the armed history of the world.”

“Some movies never get made but the stories live on forever…In 1897 on the Northwest Frontier (present day #afghanistan) 21 #Sikhs stood up against 10000 #afghanistani tribesmen.. it was a certain inevitable death but the decision to take a stand in spite of the odds and not show their backs to the enemy marks this 6.5 hrs fierce battle to death as one of the greatest last stands in the armed history of the world. #gurudwara has been made in their memorial.. this one is in near #goldentemple #amritsar,” he added.

Although Randeep did not reveal the reason why the film got shelved. The actor who is known for going through rigorous transformation for his films kept his hair uncut for three years for this film. Randeep retained his Sikh avatar for a long time even after the film got shelved.

He finally had to cut his hair for his Hollywood debut action-thriller ‘Extraction’. However, before getting his hair cut, Randeep had apologised for it in the Golden Temple.

On the work front, Randeep was last seen in Prabhudheva’s ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ starring Salman Khan and Disha Patani in lead roles. The actor will soon be seen in the web series ‘Inspector Avinash’, and the film ‘Unfair and Lovely’.
