Talking about portraying Vikram Batra on screen, Sidharth said, “This day is extremely emotional for me. We started this journey five years ago with Vishal Batra ji… This is my first film where I have portrayed the life of a real-life hero whether it’s personal or professional. Shershaah has been an experience bigger than a film. This story is about true, real life heroes like you. And I consider myself lucky that I got to play him.”

Shershaah is directed by Vishnu Varadhan and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. It will release on August 12 on Amazon Prime Video.
