The teaser shows Jimmy Shergill's character promising to avenge the Pulwama attack as he says, "Is baar itna gehra maarenge ki chot bhi lagegi aur nishaan bhi dikhega (This time we will hit so deep that it will hurt and the marks will also be visible)." The teaser also showcases a glimpse of other stars including Lara Dutta, Ashutosh Rana, Ashish Vidyarthi, Akanksha Singh, Satyajeet Dubey, Elnaaz Norouzi, and Prasanna Venkatesan.

Talking about the upcoming web series, Jimmy Shergill said in a statement, "5 years ago on 14th February, our brave hearts at Pulwama gave the supreme sacrifice on the line of duty. While we will never forget the sacrifice of our martyrs, we couldn’t stop beaming with pride when for the first we watched our country fight back! The Balakot airstrike, was a stern message that stemmed from the resilience and courage of our nation and armed forces. India took a firm stand and this date will remain etched in the nation’s heart forever - India will never forget. Being a part of this series has only heightened my respect for the jawans as I relived a defining moment in our country’s history."

Lara Dutta added, "Coming from an armed forces background, I understand the bravery, sacrifice, and love for country firsthand. The martyrs of Pulwama made the ultimate sacrifice 5 years ago, however the Balakot air strike, filled us with national pride. On the anniversary of this historic defense operation, this sneak peek aims to honour every soldier, with or without of uniform, who reshaped our nation's defence narrative."
