During a pre-release event hosted by The Indian Express for the film, Sam Bahadur, the daughter of India’s first Field Marshal, Sam Manekshaw, Maya made a rare appearance as she lauded the film for remembering her father in the most beautiful way. She talked about watching the film twice and revealed how she tears up every time especially during the last scene of the film. In her words:
“Pride will always be there. “They have made the film to make the country proud of whatever it was. But, the time that I tear up, every time, I’ve seen the film twice now, and I’ve teared up both times, is the last two seconds of the film when you turn to the audience, and you’re smiling. That just kills me every time.”

“And SAM !!!!….. GRACE, HEROISM , GRIT .What a performance, flawless, I’m just astounded, you are too inspiring, true to your craft in the most brilliant integral way , was so proud to watch you shine your way across the screen . I’ve seen you this last year pour yourself into this film and transform into Sam. A performance to be remembered.”
