Soon after the poster came out, a former Gorkha Regiment officer, Manik M Jolly, pointed out a mistake in the poster. He wrote, “Dear @akshaykumar ji, as an ex Gorkha officer, my thanks to you for making this movie. However, details matter. Kindly get the Khukri right. The sharp edge is on the other side. It is not a sword. Khukri strikes from the inner side of the blade. Ref pic of Khukri att. Thanks.”
