Dalbir Kaur, sister of late Indian death row prisoner in Pakistan, Sarabjit Singh, is said to be a big fan of TV show 'Ek Veer Ki Ardaas...Veera', which focuses on the life of Ranvi (Shivin Narang) and his half-sister Veera (Digangana Suryavanshi).

Kaur along with Sarabjit's daughter Poonam visited the set of the Star Plus show on Wednesday to meet the star cast.
"I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from Dalbirji. She got my number through a writer friend Rajesh Beri who is writing the film on Sarabjit Singh to be directed by Omung Kumar. She wanted to meet me and the entire cast of 'Veera'," Yash Patnaik, who has produced the show along with his wife Mamta Patnaik under their banner Beyond Dreams Entertainment, said in a statement.
"She met us at the office in the morning and went on talking about the show. She and her family have been following 'Veera' from the first episode. She told us how our show used to remind her about her brother Sarabjit who was in Pakistan jail at that time," Patnaik added.
Apart from Shivin and Digangana, the show also stars Sneha Wagh, Shagufta Ali, Vishal Vashishtha and Farnaz Shetty.
