Harshvardhan Rane has been receiving rave reviews for his brave act of late Major Harbhajan Singh in his latest release Paltan, helmed by veteran filmmaker JP Dutta.

Since Harshvardhan’s character is based on the life of the martyr who sacrificed his life while serving his nation, it was quite a memorable experience for the actor to live his heroic journey on the big screen. But, little did the talented actor anticipate an appreciation note from the family of the late soldier! Harshvardhan is a happy soul as he was recently blessed with a hand-written note from the niece of Major Harbhajan Singh, Priyanka Sandhu, praising his performance in the war drama and effectively portraying the character.

The note reads: “Hello Harshvardhanji, I am Priyanka Sandhu Cheema, younger sister of Ritu Sandhu and niece of Maj.Harbhajan Singh, MVC. Got your number from Ritu didi. I just wanted to congratulate you for an incredibly great job in the movie PALTAN. You brought tears to our eyes, your acting was so real, we just thought we saw our Chachaji live on the big screen. Thank you so very much. May god bless you with more and more success in your future endeavours(sic).” Priyanka recently attended Shahidi Mela held in memory of the late soldier at her village in Punjab. Interestingly, there’s also a school and sports ground named after Harbhajan and also a statue in the loving memory of him.
