Sonal Chauhan: Family members are real heroes behind army men | Memsaab.com

Sonal Chauhan, who has returned to Bollywood after a long gap with J.P. Dutta's film "Paltan", believes family members are the real heroes behind army men.

"We often praise and honour our brave soldiers but we should not forget the important role their families play. Families of soldiers should also be remembered and honoured.

"It takes immense courage to let someone whom you love to go to border and risk life for the nation. Despite knowing anything can happen, spouses of military men strongly face all the problems and support them. In reality, families and loved ones of our army men are the real unsung heroes," Sonal told IANS over the phone from Mumbai.
 

Released on September 7, "Paltan" is based on the Nathu La and Cho La military clashes of 1967 which took place along the Sikkim border.

"I feel nobody makes a war film better than him. He knows everything about wars. He made me learn about people who risk their life for the nation. While working with him, I learnt a lot of discipline from him. He is one man army," added the 31-year-old.
