Based on how Squadron leader Vijay Karnik with help of 300 local women from Gujarat reconstructed Indian Air Force airstrip, for safe landing of flights carrying army officers during the war phase against Pakistan. He was backed by 50 air force and 60 defence security cops personnel. 

Karnik himself while interacting with a leading news daily said, "We were fighting a war and if there had been any casualties of any of these women, it would have been a great loss. But I took the decision and it worked out. I had briefed them where they could take shelter if attacked and they followed it bravely. Also, I could only see Ajay Devgn essaying my character and I’m glad that he's on board."
