Finest representation of Air Force: Varun Tej

Team Operation Valentine is now busy with promotional activities. From Mumbai to Vijayawada and Hyderabad, the team is covering all major cities.

As part of the promotions, actor Varun Tej interacted with the media about the film. He said the film has a national appeal.

Referring to Hrithik Roshan’s recent Bollywood film Fighter, which had the same premises, Varun Tej said, “Our budget constraints prevent us from spending ₹200 or ₹300 crores, we had to tell the story effectively.”

He further added: “However, upon presenting our film to the Indian Air Force, they commended us, stating that our movie stands out as the finest representation of the Air Force.”

The actor also spoke about standing with the army in such circumstances. He said, “We may have different opinions on other things, but when it comes to our national security, we can’t have multiple opinions.”
