Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani have started filming for Shershaah. The war historical is based on the life of Captain Vikram Batra, who was killed in the Kargil War. Shooting began with scenes involving Vikram’s college life in Chandigarh, where he studied Medical Sciences. The film will be shot for approximately 70 days across Chandigarh, Palampur, Kashmir and Ladakh. Besides the lead role, Sidharth will also be seen playing Vikram’s twin brother. The actor has trained in military weaponry and army etiquette for the film.

Vikram Batra was killed in combat on Point 4875 in the Dras sub sector of Kargil on July 7, 1999. He was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra, India’s highest military decoration. 

Shershaah is directed by Vishnu Varadhan, and produced by Karan Johar and Shabbir Boxwala. Sidharth Malhotra’s upcoming releases include Jabariya Jodi and Marjaavan.
