Firstly, my biggest admiration for @apoorva 1972, always the strongest pillar of strength in any situation. Thank you @sidmalhotra, who brought this special story to us at @dharmamovies. And continued to play the role of Captain Vikram Batra like no one could! You are the hearts of the film... @kiaraaliaadvani, truly one of the most special artists we have in the industry today...you brought in the pain, the pathos and the pride with Dimple's character. Vishnu Varadhan, the man who made each frame possible. Your vision is what steered this ship to victory. @isandeepshrivastava, a film is only as great as the script
on paper & you gave us nothing less than gold.

For the unversed, the journey of Shershaah began with a simple conversation between Student of the Year star Sidharth Malhotra, and Vishal Batra, brother of Kargil War hero, Captain Vikram Batra. The result of which was the award-winning Shershaah. 

Sidharth Malhotra’s portrayal of the heroic Captain Vikram Batra will forever remain iconic and is the perfect tribute to the life of Captain Batra, a perfect addition to his heroic legacy.
