The actor is once again set to mesmerize audiences with his on-screen portrayal of the hero of the India-Pakistan conflict in Kargil in 1999, Captain Vikram Batra, in filmmaker Karan Johar’s next production “Shershaah”.
Captain Batra was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra, India’s highest military decoration, for his courage during the conflict. He was martyred at the young age of 24.
On his birthday, the actor revealed the first posters of the film, and it's hard to take your eyes off his intense glare and zeal in the poster.
Sidharth captioned the image as, “An absolute honour to be able to paint the big screen with shades of bravery and sacrifice. Paying an ode to the journey of Captain Vikram Batra (PVC) and bringing the UNTOLD TRUE STORY with #Shershaah. Releasing 3rd July, 2020.”

Johar also took to his twitter to share the look from the poster.
In September, the actor shared the photos from his shooting locations and shared how happy he was to be at the place.

Going through his Instagram profile, one would find how grateful Sidharth is for the project that is very close to his heart.
In the post, he shared a small video of Batra and captioned it by saying, “the Valour of Shershaah made him immortal. Happy birthday Shershaah, respect and salute to Captain Vikram Batra. Jai Hind.”
The film also stars Bollywood actress Kiara Advani in a lead role.
