Shershaah movie is based on the life of Captain Vikram Batra who was an officer of the Indian Army .He  was posthumously awarded with the Param Vir Chakra which is India’s highest and most prestigious award for valour. He was decorated with his medal  for his actions during the 1999 Kargil War in Kashmir between India and Pakistan. Sidharth Malhotra is the main lead in a double role, as Batra and his identical twin brother Vishal; Kiara Advani plays the female lead. 

The official announcement for film was made in May 2019 and wrapped up in January 2020. First look posters of the film were unveiled on 16 January 2020 and the release date will be 2 July 2021. Shershaah movie is Vishnuvardhan’s directional debut in Bollywood . The film is produced by Karan Johar and Shabbir Boxwala.

Sidharth Malhotra had been training and preparing hard for his role as Captain Vikram Batra (PVC) for Shershaah. The movie was put on an abrupt halt considering the COVID-19 situation, however, the shoot for it wrapped up back in October and the actor was eagerly waiting for things to settle so they could announce a release date. 

Shershaah is based on the life of martyr, Captain Vikram Batra (PVC) who laid down his life at the Kargil War almost 22 years ago.

Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani along with Jaaved Jaffrey, Shiv Panditt , Himmanshoo A. Malhotra ,Ankita Goraya ,Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in the upcoming movie Shershaah. The film is based on the life story of Captain Vikram Batra. On Army Day, the makers have dropped three posters of the film as a tribute to Indian Army. The movie will tell you about Captain Vikram Batra valour  during the Battle of Kargil. 

The first look of Siddharth is being well liked. There is much hype about this movie and Siddharth’s look on social media . Malhotra begun training in April 2019 and it was tentatively named Mera Dil Maange More though it was later titled – Shershah. This film is named ‘Sher Shah‘ because there was so much fear of Captain Batra among the Pakistani soldiers that he had named Captain Batra’s code name Sher Shah as the title of the movie.

Sidharth Malhotra, who was last seen in Aiyaary a year ago, will be playing the title role of the brave military officer in this film. Kiara Advani , who was last seen in a super successful movie Kabir Singh , is playing the role of Batra’s fiancée Dimple Cheema.

Shershaah movie was shot in Kashmir Valley. After the abolition of Article 370, speculations had been rife over the fate of films set to shoot in the valley. The film’s co-producer Shabbir Boxwala, told Mumbai Mirror, “Some of the heavy equipment, like the lighting truck and some crew members, were delayed as their route to Kargil had to be diverted via Leh instead of Srinagar, where the situation is still said to be a little tense.

There is a lot of security and checking in and around Srinagar.” “People of Kargil, Leh and Ladakh are basically calm and easy-going. The problem in Srinagar is also said to be not that bad. The protests are peaceful. Even the police and the army don’t want anyone to get hurt.

Sidharth and the rest of the cast and crew have got acclimatised to the setting in the last few days. Sid has also got extra time for his workout and prep,” Shabbir added. As far as the story of the war hero goes, Captain Vikram Batra died while recapturing Indian territories from Pakistani intruders during the Kargil War in 1999. The movie  is a tribute given to him and all the war heroes who always save the Motherland without thinking about their lives.
