Amazon Prime Video along with Dharma Movies is all set to bring the power-packed war-drama film, Shershaah as a lead up to the Independence Day Weekend. An ultimate tribute to Captain Vikram Batra (PVC) who showed unflinching courage and valor during the Kargil War in 1999.
Lead actor Siddharth Malhotra who essays the role of ‘Shershaah’, Captain Vikram Batra (PVC) shared, “It’s was a very good feeling that Shershaah could be shot on that land itself. We were shooting at the place 2 years back so we are still very attached to the place and it was an apt place to show our audience that what kind of battle was fought by our army men. We faced a lot of difficulty in doing a pretend fight so I have full respect for our force who actually fought for our safety with their life on stakes. I wonder how much difficulty they had to go through while doing so.”
The film honors the PVC awardee, Caption Vikram Batra’s invaluable sacrifice in the Kargil War. It is the story of a soldier who became not only an inspiration but a legend for generations to come.
Directed by Vishnu Varadhan, Shershaah is inspired by the life of Captain Vikram Batra (PVC) and stars Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani in the lead along with Shiv Panditt, Raj Arjun, Pranay Pachauri, Himanshu Ashok Malhotra, Nikitin Dheer, Anil Charanjeett, Sahil Vaid, Shataf Figar and Pawan Chopra in pivotal roles.
Jointly produced by Dharma Productions and Kaash Entertainment, the film marks the first ever and landmark collaboration between Amazon Prime Video and Dharma Productions for a global release.
Shershaah will stream on Amazon Prime Video in India and across 240 countries and territories starting August 12th, 2021.
