Kargil Vijay Diwas: Sidharth Malhotra recalls working on Shershah

Last year, actor Sidharth Malhotra gave a new life to his career by starring in the much appreciated war drama 'Shershah'. He played the role of Kargil War hero and Param Vir Chakra recipient Captain Vikram Batra and his performance was loved by fans as well as critics. On the occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas 2022, Sidharth Malhotra looked back on his experience of working on 'Shershah' and shared how the film changed him for life.

According to a recent report in Hindustan Times, the actor said, "After shooting for Shershaah, and then last year getting an opportunity to be present at the ceremony of Kargil Vijay Diwas there, amongst the families of all the brave hearts who sacrificed their lives and the officials of the Indian Army… It was an extremely emotional moment for me on various levels."

He further added, "I could really connect with the effort and the sacrifice of the Indian Army, and now with the essence and the importance of celebrating Kargil Vijay Diwas. It is a sacrifice that we must remember and respect. After knowing the life of a war hero so closely, it is extremely special to me, and is something I think every Indian should respect."
