Ranaut shared a series of pictures from the film’s screening on social media. “Today, [I] hosted a screening of Tejas, a film based on a martyr’s life, for honourable Chief Minister @myogiadityanath ji. As you can see in the first picture, Maharaj ji couldn’t hold back his tears in the last monologue,” the actor captioned the image. In a separate post, Ranaut said Pushkar Singh Dhami, the chief minister of Uttarakhand, also attended the show. Tejas stars Ranaut in the titular role of an Indian Air Force pilot.
