Speaking about the film and director Nikhil, Arjun said, "I give him (Nikhil) a 100/100 for giving Indians the film their way - with romance, emotions, drama and a message. This movie shows what RAW agents go through to save people's lives. Their pictures never make it to the papers. If they fail, it's their responsibility. But, they still go out there. D-Day is a story of these real heroes," Times of India reported.
"I feel all my efforts have paid off. My producers call every day, wanting to increase my security cover because of this film. I know I am at risk, but I wanted to do this film. People want a hero, and I tell them, you take this hero. Every Indian should see this movie as proof that you can do what you want to do. And you don't need to please anybody. Mr Bachchan said he wishes he was born now, when such cinema is being made. It was the best compliment ever," he added.
