Kargil Vijay Diwas remembers the sacrifices made by the Indian Armed Forces, in keeping the nation safe from infiltration by the Pakistani Army during the Kargil War of 1999 and commemorates the success of ‘Operation Vijay'.
2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the completion of ‘Operation Vijay’, and EPIC will pay homage to the brave soldiers by celebrating Vijay Diwas all-day on the channel.
The special line-up includes World Television Premiere of ‘Uri - The Forgotten Battle’ – produced by Major General GD Bakshi, who was awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal for bravely commanding a battalion during the Kargil war. The film is an authoritative retelling of events that helped the Indian Army delay the Pakistani forces until they were destroyed.
Other special features include ‘Turning point at Tololing’, ‘Killer Squadron’, and ‘1965 Indo – Pakistan War’- single episode stories that display the glory of the Indian Armed Forces.
Also part of the line-up are episodes from EPIC’s popular show – Regiment Diaries – that chronicles the history, achievements, and anecdotes of the regiments of the Indian Army. The show also brings alive tales of bravery from the borders and regiments, particularly those who fought in the Kargil war.
Akul Tripathi, Content and Programming Head at EPIC Channel, said, “The Indian Army is more than just a government wing or a fighting force that guards our borders. It is an emotion, a living chronicle of times, events, and incidents that we have the luxury to forget because they remember. On Kargil Vijay Diwas, we remember the fallen with deep gratitude and salute those who have served and still serve, putting nation before self.”
The specials air on EPIC channel July 26, from 7:00 am to 11:30 PM.
