During a recent interview, Sara spoke about her character and said, it has been an honor beyond words to portray such a powerful character in Ae Watan Mere Watan. The movie serves as both a tribute to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder of the sacrifices made by many unsung heroes, the actor added.

The film is scheduled to release on March 21 in five languages, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada, on Prime Videos in India and in over 240 other countries and territories globally.
