The experience of watching the parade was more like watching an India Pakistan match: Randeep Hooda

Prominent bollywood actor Randeep Hooda recently visited Wagah border, Punjab to witness the Beating Retreat ceremony held at the border. Sharing the experience of attending the Beating Retreat ceremony, the actor took to his Instagram handle.Sharing the experience he wrote on his Instagram post that, "Though it was my first visit to the actual Amritsar border site, it wasn’t the first one to the India Pak border. The first one was on the Ferozpur border while on a break from Shooting #Highway. And then there was #Sarbjit. Though relationship between the two countries are now more hard standing than before but one does feel sad for the political line drawn in the sand that led to the exodus and killing of millions. Probably an event more ghastly than the Holocaust.

During the visit to the Ferozepur border I had stepped over the #zeroline and clicked a picture. Here it’s much more strict. Though a young guard did salute us from the other side to which many saluted back. The feeling of intrigue and mystery was more over whelming than animosity.It was my parents wish that they wanted to attend the beating retreat parade at the border. Also known as #Wagah though that’s the first village on the Pakistan side. Same thing really. To avoid chaos and the feeling of being fish in a fish bowl I sought some help. And no it was not a so called celebrity call but a message placed in the school batch group that resulted in this fine experience.

One of my classmates fondly called Brado by us all happens be in the #BSF. So he calls his course mate Sunil Yadav posted in #Amritsar to make sure that my parents get the whole “apne uncle aunty hain” experience with yours truly tagging along.So the chain of meeting real men and women and families behind the uniform of the BSF started. From The DIG Bhupender Singh Choudhary onwards the Shokeens, the Negis, the Soods, the Dahiyas, the Singhs, the kumars and more Chaudharys.After a quick tea, interaction with the lovely wife’s and achiever kids, photographs, laughs and my parents feeling very important and valued we set off to the actual border through the last village on the Indian side - #Attari. The experience of watching the parade was more like watching an India Pakistan match where instead of players there were very smartly dressed really tall well built soldiers.
