Earlier, an announcement video for the film was unveiled with a glimpse into its world as Sky Force is set around the events happening in the 1960s with growing tensions between India and Pakistan. It featured an original clip of Lal Bahadur Shastri wherein he can be seen saying: “talwar ki nok par, ya atom bomb ke darr se, koi hamare desh ko jhukana chahe, dabana chahe, ye desh hamara dabne wala nahi hai (If somebody wants to threaten us with a sword or an atom bomb…our country won’t be subdued).”
