It was nothing short of an uphill task when 9 celebrities decided to scale the unchartered Siachen Glacier on August 15th. For Bollywood superstar, Arjun Rampal, Salute Siachen, the groundbreaking initiative by Eros Now proved to be a cathartic experience. The actor who was part of India’s first ever celebrity expedition got a first-hand opportunity to carry the goodwill and gratitude of an entire nation to Siachen.
Talking about his experience, Arjun Rampal says, “Salute Siachen has been a life changing experience for me. The power of nature. The solitude a person feels. The sacrifices our soldiers make. The conditions they live under. This initiative by Eros Now has been so satisfying as we got to thank and embrace our brave soldiers who gave us a glimpse into their lives. At the same time, they allowed me to launch my campaign for my foundation to beat cancer.”
The 20-day expedition that commenced from Leh as a tribute to the Indian army saw popular Bollywood actors Arjun Rampal, Arunoday Singh, sports personalities – cricketer Rudra Pratap Singh and hockey player Yuvraj Walmiki, TV heartthrob Rannvijay Singha along with Namrata Gujaran, Hasan Zaidi, Shlok Sharma and Sonnalli Seygall participate in an arduous journey to salute the courage of our soldiers who man the posts there in conditions of extreme adversity.
