Talking candidly about the biopic of Vikram Batra, Sidharth Malhotra has said “This story is based on the Kargil war and it’s very inspiring and touching. I’ve never played a character that’s real. Their family approached me a while ago and said that if anyone had to play their son, then they’d be very interested if I could do it. It was very overwhelming, because I had heard of his story, but when I got into the details, it was amazing to learn about his life and journey.”
Sidharth has also added “It’s very difficult to portray someone who, at such a young age, gave up his life for the country.”
On playing a real life person, Sidharth has said “You have to give it respect because we’re talking about a martyr. That’s more challenging than being compared. He is not a celebrity, so I have less to worry about in that regard, but I have to be sensitive so that I do justice to the role and don’t offend people. I feel very answerable to the family; they approached me for the role. I hope they feel satisfied and happy when the film releases”
