Shershaah Trailer: Sidharth Malhotra as Captain Vikram Batra offers patriotism and captures the essence of the brave soldier
Helmed by Vishnu Varadhan also stars Kiara Advani, Shiv Panditt, Nikitin Dheer and Sahil Vaid. The film will be out on Amazon Prime Video on August 12.
Shershaah trailer was out on Sunday evening, just before Kargil Vijay Diwas (July 26). Entertainers Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra arrived at Kargil for the trailer dispatch occasion. Shershaah depends on the existence of Kargil war legend, Captain Vikram Batra, who passed on during the conflict in 1999.
The Shershaah trailer begins with Sidharth Malhotra reporting as Captain Vikram Batra. The two-and-a-half-minute video takes us through various aspects of the soldier's life - both personal and professional. It also features the now-famous line, Ya to Tiranga lehra ke aunga ya Tirange me lipat kar aunga (Either I will return after hoisting the national flag or come back wrapped in it). Former prime minister, the late Atal Bihari Vajpayee, also made an appearance in the trailer and was seen giving his famous speech, in which he said, "Hum shanti ki raksha ke liye shakti ka pradarshan karna jaante hain (We can show our strength to protect our peace)."
Set during the 1990s, Shershaah offers knowledge into the existence of Param Veer Chakra awardee Captain Vikram Batra, from his time of honest sentiment to his penance for the country.
Sidharth and Kiara Advani shared posters of the film as they left Mumbai for Srinagar. Earlier, Sidharth had shared the film's teaser and written on Instagram, "Heroes live on through their stories. We are honoured to bring to you the true story of the Kargil War hero, Captain Vikram Batra (PVC).A film which has had a long journey for me and a real life character I am proud to play."
Directed by Vishnu Varadhan and jointly produced by Dharma Productions and Kaash Entertainment, Shershaah also features actors Shiv Panditt, Raj Arjun, Pranay Pachauri, Himanshu Ashok Malhotra, Nikitin Dheer, Anil Charanjeett, Sahil Vaid, Shataf Figar and Pawan Chopra.
Talking about the film, Karan Johar of Dharma Productions had said, "Shershaah, the true story of a war hero whose indomitable spirit and bravery brought victory to our nation. His sacrifices are invaluable and his life is an inspiration for generations to come."
The film is slated to release on August 12th on Amazon Prime Video.
