Shooting of Vikram Batra biopic has been just started by Sidharth Malhotra alongside his co-star in the movie Kiara Advani. Shershaah is a movie that is based upon the life of Vikram Batra who has been a Kargil war hero. Shooting of the movie has started in Chandigarh. On the first day of shoot, cast and crew have come together for a picture.
Recently, it has been announced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Production that Vikram Batra biopic will be titled Shershaah. Vishnu Vardhan is the director of this movie whereas it has been scripted by Sandeep Srivastava. In this movie, Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani will be seen together for the first time.
In Shershaah, Sidharth is expected to be seen in a double role. On the occasion, he will be playing the role of Captain Vikram Batra as well his twin brother Vishal Batra. For the uninitiated, Vikram has been martyred during Kargil War following to a valiant fight. At the time, Vikram Batra has been only 24.
Regarding the movie, Sidharth has said previously “We are planning how to cleverly deal with it (double roles). He impacted so many people in the Army. I won’t say he is a personality that everybody knows but I felt it was a story that needed to be told. I found his story fascinating.”
Sidharth Malhotra has completed the shooting of Jabariya Jodi sometime back where he will be seen with Parineeti Chopra. On the other hand, Kiara will be seen next in Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh which is going to release soon.
