Ahead of the release of his film India's Most Wanted, actor Arjun Kapoor on Wednesday requested people to pay tribute to the unsung heroes of the country. Arjun took to Instagram and uploaded a video message, appealing to citizens to take out time to thank the "unsung heroes", who protect the country.
He said: "I launched the 'Vande Mataram' song yesterday and I realised Vande Matram means a salute to motherland. I started thinking we don't salute the people who actually protect the motherland. We don't take out time to remember them and to be kind and grateful to them.
