Guwahati: Actor Harshvardhan Rane who has already carved out a niche for himself in Bollywood has decided to dump all China-made goods in protest against the death of 20 Indian soldiers at the hands of Chinese troops at Galwan in Eastern Ladakh recently. Relating to the condition of Indian soldiers at the Indo-China border, the actor said, "I relate to the condition of our soldiers at the Indo-China border currently, because I was part of a film, 'Paltan', two years ago, which was about the same issue that our country is facing currently. I'm glad that JP Dutta had such farsightedness, as he made a film around something that the country is facing today".
Significantly, Harshvardhan played the role of an Indian soldier in ‘Paltan’. The film was based on the 1967 Nathu La and Cho La between Indian and Chinese forces in the Sikkim border.
"Hence, I understand their pain and strictly condemn China's actions. When we were shooting for the film, we spent days chatting with the army officers at the border and listening to their heart-touching stories. I have practically lived that life, hence I relate to their pain." Harshvardhan went on to state.
