Actor Mohit Raina recently spoke about his childhood days spent in Kashmir. Mohit said that when he was 9 years old, his family was caught in the crossfire in Kashmir. He said that day was very scary and he will never forget the memories of Kashmir.
He said that in the 90s, when terrorist infiltration was at its peak in Kashmir, even a basic thing like going to school was like a dream for the children living in the valley. No one knows whether they will make it safely from the school or not.
I saw the school burning before my eyes: Raina
While talking to Ranveer Allahabadia, Mohit Raina told that he lived in Kashmir till the age of 9. After this his family decided to leave Kashmir. He said- I still remember that day when I saw my school burning before my eyes.
I think these things are very personal and very painful, but not everyone understands them. In my childhood, we sometimes saw shootings on the way to school.
The shooting happened in the middle of the road, I was standing far from my family: Raina
Mohit Raina also said that Kashmir taught him many lessons at a very young age. He said- The plaintiff taught me a lesson to maintain patience and fight in critical situations like life and death.
When you are only 8 years old and you have to see that your parents and siblings are standing on the other side of the road, while you are on the other side and there is a shooting going on, such things teach you.
Important decisions must be made in difficult times: Raina
Mohit Raina said- Army soldiers came to you in uniform to save you and take you to a safe place; But common people feel that if they are with army personnel they may also be attacked.
At that time you have to decide for yourself which way to go and who will save your life. Such things teach you a lot.
Mohit Raina played the role of Major Karan Kashyap in the film Uri: The Surgical Strike.
Army soldiers are heroes, not Superman, Batman: Raina
Mohit Raina said- Like other children, we never considered Superman or Batman as our heroes, for us only army soldiers are heroes. We have always seen army personnel growing up around us. He said- Ever seen soldiers in uniform since childhood. Because of this, I also played the role of an army officer in the film Uri: The Surgical Strike.
I have a very strong connection to the uniform. This is the reason why I accepted the role of a Freelancer officer as well. I will never pass up any such opportunity where I can get such a job.
Mohit Raina became a household name in the TV series Devon Ke Dev Mahadev.
