Video: Bollywood salutes the Kargil martyrs

Bollywood movies based on the lives of Indian soliders have always made their mark in the minds of the audience. 

On the occasion of the 17th Kargil Vijay Diwas today, we can't help but mention a few.  

'Border' was one of the most iconic films based on 1971 Indo-Pak war. This film by JP Dutta broke all box office records. The film had a huge star cast comprising Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty and Akshay Khanna.

Next came, 'LOC Kargil'. JP Dutta carried his legacy of making war-films when he directed this one. Based on the 1999 Indo-Pak war, the movie saw Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn and Suniel Shetty.

'Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyon' was another big war film. It was directed by Anil Sharma and starred Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Bobby Deol. The film was based on the 1971 Indo-Pak war.

'Lakshya' starring Preity Zinta and Hrithik Roshan was an inspiring tale. The movie was a huge hit and it was successful in catching the imagination of an entire generation of youth.
