In order to pay tribute to the country’s soldiers, veteran actress Hema Malini and director Madhur Bhandarkar recently announced the launch of ‘One For All, All For One: A Tribute & Salute to the True Unsung Heroes of Our Nation’. The idea has been conceptualised by Sunil Rane, the chairman of Atharva Foundation. The event, to be held on January 31, 2018, in Mumbai, will showcase real-life short stories of several Indian soldiers on a big screen.

Giving a sneak peek into the stars who could be a part of the event, Sunil revealed, “Almost every actor is eager to participate. We decided to make it big from the North to South. Right now, I can only give away the name of the biggest Tollywood actor, Prabhas, who will also be joining us for this event.”

On the other hand, Hema Malini, who was touched by the idea of portraying the real valour of soldiers on the big screen, said, “We need to give a chance to the students of Atharva College, with an inclination towards storytelling. We should hold a competition and the winner should be allowed to participate in the event to be held on January 31 at the Gateway of India.”
