At a time when Bollywood is making many films with men in uniform as protagonists, actor

Nimrat Kaur

, who lost her army officer-father in a ­terrorist attack in 1994, feels that such films are not well researched.

"The only film based on the Indian defence ­services that I liked was the Nana Patekar and Madhuri Dixit-starrer Prahaar (1991). It talked about how people in the armed ­forces see and react to ­injustice," she says.

Nimrat adds that films don’t always ­portray reality, especially when it comes to films ­revolving around the Indian Army. "Sometimes what you see on the celluloid is not correct. For ­example, certain defence services-based films don’t even use the right ranks. Either the colour on the flap is not right or the order of the rank is incorrect," says Nimrat.

Talking about what needs to be done for the betterment of the army personnel in India, she says, "When I lost my father, we faced difficult days. I feel there are a lot of things that can be done for the forces and salary is one big area for ­improvement," she says.
