Varun Tej and Manushi Chhillar are gearing up for the release of their upcoming film Operation Valentine. The Hindi-Telugu bilingual film, helmed by Shakti Pratap Singh, is based on the Pulwama attack and Balakot airstrike. Speaking of which, the actor during the promotional events addresses people calling patriotic films propaganda of political parties.

We can't have multiple opinions: Varun Tej

Speaking with Telugu 123, Tej emphasised that the most important thing is that the Air Force/Indian Army carries out great attacks, so people should stand with them irrespective of the political party. He added that it should not be viewed as a favour to one party. “We may have different opinions on that, but when it comes to our national security, we can’t have multiple opinions,” the actor added.

Since the trailer of Operation Valentine was unveiled, there has been constant chatter around the film. The film was also compared to Hrithik Roshan's recently released film Fighter. Speaking to Pinkvilla, the actor addressed the reports and shared that his film is different as it also revolves around the personal lives of Air Force people. He added that they are not trying to glorify and play only around the incident of Balakot or what happened on February 14 (the 2019 Pulwama attack).
