Amazon Original Movie Shershaah is all set to premiere globally this Thursday. The much awaited war-drama tells the true story of Captain Vikram Batra (PVC) and has been made with the full support of the late war hero’s family. Indeed the journey of bringing Captain Vikram Batra’s incredible story to the screen, has indeed been an emotional one for the Batra family ever since their real-life hero was martyred at the 1999 Kargil war. With mere days left for the world premiere of Shershaah on Amazon Prime Video, the film’s cast gathered with The Indian Army, friends and family of Capt. Batra for a special screening in the capital city ahead of the release.
Held in honour of the martyred war hero, the screening was attended by Vishal Batra, twin brother of the real-life Shershaah, Capt.

General Sanjiv Sharma, Deputy Chief of Army Staff and actor Sidharth Malhotra’s friends and family.
Bolstered the presence of the army and the Batra family, the screening was a special and intimate affair that not only honoured the legacy of Capt. Batra, but also served as an ode to the dedication and commitment of our Armed Forces. With the reel and real life Shershaah’s family and close friends in attendance, the screening was an emotional homage to the braveheart who played a pivotal part in India’s victory at Kargil.
