Preity posted a snippet of the song “Agar main kahoon” from the film on Instagram. The number features the actress alongside Hrithik.

“Remembering Lakshya today — My toughest film ever. Filming at 18000+feet in Ladakh was brutal and beautiful at the same time. I’m so proud of this film and everything it stood for,” she captioned the image.

Preity added: “It is definitely a love letter to all the army brats out there It’s also a reminder to never forget all those sacrifices & the unmatched bravery of our armed forces. Thank you @amitabhbachchan ji @faroutakhtar @hrithikroshan @ritesh_sid@zoieakhtar @reemakagti1@jaduakhtar @shankarehsaanloy & the entire cast n crew for this memorable experience. #17yearsofLakshya #Memories #Jaihind #Ting.”
