EPIC Channel salutes the Indian Armed Forces this ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’ with a special line-up

The all-day programming celebrates the raw courage and determination of our country’s finest.

MUMBAI: 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’, which was launched by the army to clear the Kargil sector after Pakistani troops occupied Indian posts in the region of Jammu and Kashmir.

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the completion of ‘Operation Vijay’, and EPIC Channel — India Ka Apna Infotainment — remembers the determination and raw courage of our jawans, and pays them homage 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 of the line-up 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 Channel’s hugely 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 & salute those who have served and still serve, putting nation before self.”
