Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani starrer Shershaah is set to release on August 12 on Amazon Prime Video. Sidharth’s portrayal of Captain Vikram Batra both in his professional and personal life is sure to leave the audience impressed. The biographical war drama, directed by noted south film director Vishnuvaradhan, narrates the life story of Captain Batra and how he led the charge of his troops during the 1999 Kargil war. He was given the highest wartime gallantry award Param Vir Chakra posthumously.
Shershaah was supposed to release last year in theatres, but the coronavirus-induced lockdown forced cinema halls to shut, delaying its arrival. It was further pushed to release at the beginning of 2021 but later it was announced that the film would stream on Amazon Prime Video.
In the film, Malhotra will be seen in the double role of Captain Vikram Batra and his twin brother Vishal Batra.
