Actor Amit Sadh has recalled how working in an upcoming web-series based on the Uri surgical strike of September 2016 brought back memories of his childhood, spent in an army family background. Titled "Avrodh: The Siege Within", the series casts Amit in the role of Major Tango, an on-screen version of the real-life hero who spearheaded the mission.

"The incident of Uri is a remarkable one, so being a part of a show that spoke about this incident was a surreal experience. Shooting for the show gave me goosebumps and I am sure watching it would do the same to the viewers," he added "Avrodh" releases on July 3. Amit will also be seen in the OTT-released films, "Shakuntala Devi" and "Yaara".
