Randeep’s look was so realistic, it took people down the memory lane with Sarbjit and got a bittersweet smile. Even the old villager who was really close with Sarbjit also recognized Randeep as Sarbjit. The emotional eventually spread, and it turned into a happy moment when Randeep acknowledged his love by spending tremendous time with the villagers who were so excited to have a word with him.
“It was a really emotional moment for all the villagers as they could see a lot of Sarbjit in Randeep. His body language and look is just like Sarbjit before he accidentally crossed over to Pakistan in 1990. It was a nostalgic moment for villagers as the recalled the image of Sarbjit after so many years.”
