Amgaon (Maharashtra), Jan 15 (IANS) The cast and crew of "21 Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897" celebrated Army Day on Monday with soldiers of the Sikh regiment of the Indian Army.

Actors Mohit Raina and Mukul Dev personally took the soldiers of the Sikh regiment on a tour of the set in Amgaon, where scenes related to the epic battle of Saragarhi are currently being filmed.

"We are honoured to have the soldiers of Sikh regiment in our studio on this special day, where the bravest of the country are celebrated. Battle of Saragarhi is considered as one of the bravest day in the Indian history. We salute them in the admiration of their bravery and show gratitude in recognition of their courage," producer Abhimanyu Singh, CEO of Contiloe Pictures, said in a statement.

Mohit said: "It was an absolute delight to host soldiers of the Sikh regiment, along with their families, on the special occasion of the Army Day."

"(The fiction show) 21 Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897" is inspired by the real-life story of 21 brave soldiers of the 36th Sikh regiment of the British Indian Army. It will be aired on the new entertainment channel Discovery Jeet starting February 12.

Mohit plays Havildar Ishar Singh.

"The role has helped me appreciate the spirit, the ethos of an Indian soldier even more than ever before. It is a supreme emotion when an individual elevates his thoughts to such a high that life itself becomes immaterial as he is ready to give it all to the motherland. Our soldiers defy every odd, face every challenge, so that we all can enjoy our lives. I salute this spirit," Mohit added.
