Sidharth Malhotra is super excited to present his labour of love, Shershaah, to the audience on August 12. The actor has literally given his sweat and blood to this film and has left no stone unturned to step into the shoes of Capt. Vikram Batra. From his physical transformation to getting into the right mindset to portray the role of Paramvir Chakra winner, Sidharth has done it all very impressively.


Directed by Vishnuvardhan, Shershaah traces the life journey of Param Vir Chakra awardee and army captain Vikram Batra. It will also chronicle how Vikram bravely rescued a fellow officer during the Kargil War in June 1999 in the Dras sub-sector.

Sidharth Malhotra has been associated with Capt. Vikram Batra’s story right from the beginning. He met up with Captain Batra’s family, including his twin brother Vishal Batra before filming as a part of his prep. In fact, they were the ones who approached him to play the part of their son. Yes, Sidharth will be seen essaying the role of both Batra and his identical twin brother Vishal.
