21 Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897 is a fiction show inspired by the real-life story of 21 brave soldiers of 36th Sikh regiment of the British Indian Army which defended an army outpost at Saragarhi in the North-West Frontier Province against an onslaught by over 10,000 Pashtun and Orakzai tribals in September 1897.

Speaking about the look of Havildar Ishar Singh, Mohit Raina says, “I have always been fascinated by defence services, as a student of army school was always surrounded by men of discipline and repute. Its an honour to play a Hawaldar who laid a life for his motherland. To look the part was the most challenging task, but the research/creative team has done such a wonderful job. Minuscule details were taken care of, hoping the audience likes the first look and accepts the part .
