Team ‘Shershaah’ released a special video that paid tribute to Kargil War Hero, Captain Vikram Batra. The team that made the Bollywood Flick: Shershaah featuring Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani as lead couple paid tribute to Kargil War Hero cum Param Vir Chakra recipient Captain Vikram Batra with a special video. Shershaah is the biopic of Captain Vikram Batra in which Bollywood Newbies, Sidharth, and Kiara, will tell the tale of his heroism and sacrifice.
As a tribute to Captain Batra, the video was posted by Dharma Productions on their official Twitter account and was captioned with the words that read,
“A homage to the proud son of the soil. Your courage, bravery and love for our country will never be forgotten. Remembering Captain Vikram Batra (PVC).”
Talking more about this video, it opens with the silhouette of a soldier and reveals a message paying tribute to Captain Vikram Batra.
“The soldier who left no stone unturned, to display an act of unparalleled courage leading at the frontline armed with his valour and pride, lives on in the heart of every Indian.”
Shershaah is helmed by Vishnu Varadhan and is made under the home banner of Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The film stars Sidharth Malhotra as the protagonist who will be seen essaying the role of Captain Batra, who laid down his life in the service of the nation while recapturing Indian territories from Pakistani invaders during the Kargil War of 1999.
Talking to IANS about ‘Shershaah’, Sidharth had said,
“If it is a story which will become a passion project then (he will produce the film), not from a commercial aspect… a story which I feel has to be made and should be made. It will be great to create content and tell stories which I believe in.”
Shershaah was earlier scheduled to be released on July 3rd, 2020. But due to the never-ending coronavirus pandemic, its release has been postponed indefinitely.
