The recently-released Shershaah on Amazon Prime Video gives fans a glimpse of how the Indian army attacked the enemy after their taunts on the two Bollywood divas
Amazon Prime Video’s Shershaah has been garnering a lot of appreciation from critics and fans alike ever since its release on the streaming service. In the film, we get to know some interesting anecdotes from the Kargil War and how the Indian army gave it back to the enemy in trademark Bollywood style. During the Kargil War, it so happened that Pakistani soldiers used to mock Bollywood actresses Madhuri Dixit & Raveena Tandon and used to taunt the Indian forces by saying, “We will leave Kashmir if India gives us Madhuri & Raveena.” So, Captain Vikram Batra, known for his sheer bravado, gave it back to Pak soldiers by attacking them with a hand-grenade and said, “To all of you with love, from Madhuri Dixit.” Similarly, for Raveena Tandon, the Indian Air Force replied by launching a missile by wishing, ‘’From Raveena Tandon to Nawaz Sharif.”
The war drama based on the life of Param Vir Chakra awardee Captain Vikram Batra is a tribute to all the Kargil War heroes who fought for protecting their nation from the enemy. 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, Shershaah is streaming now across 240 countries and territories exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
