The actor talked about her character while interacting with the daily. She mentioned that the contribution of women in defence usually goes unnoticed and through this film, she wanted to highlight a woman’s sacrifice and struggle when she wears a uniform. Kangana was quoted saying, “Very often, the sacrifices made by our brave women in uniform go unnoticed by the nation. Tejas is a film where I have the honour of playing the role of one such Air Force pilot who puts country before self. I hope we instill a sense of patriotism and pride in the youth of today with this movie. I’m looking forward to the journey with Sarvesh and Ronnie on this one.” Also Read - Thalaivi: Kangana Ranaut's Look as Classical Dance Lover Jayalalithaa Sets Internet on Fire
