Shershaah To Release On OTT: Starring Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra in lead roles, Shershaah has finally confirmed its release date. The film was announced in 2018 and was preparing for a theatrical release. Shershaah has now opted for an OTT release owing to the COVID-19 pandemic induced restrictions.
Shershaah is directed by Vishnu Varadhan and is being jointly produced by Dharma Productions and Kaash Entertainment. The film will star Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra in the main role, while the supporting cast of the film features Shiv Panditt, Shataf Figar, Nikitin Dheer, Pranay Pachauri, Raj Arjun, Sahil Vaid, Pawan Chopra, and Anil Charanjeett. The film which is produced by Dharma Productions is the first collaboration between the production house and Amazon Prime Video for a global premiere.
The film is based on the story of war hero Captain Vikram Batra (PVC). It is the story of heroism, love, and sacrifice and celebrates his spirit while honouring his invaluable sacrifice in the 1999 Kargil War. The film’s name Shershaah has been taken from Captain Batra’s codename in the Indian Army.
Karan Johar said that Captain Batra’s sacrifices are invaluable and his life is an inspiration for generations to come. Talking about the OTT release of the film he said that he is glad to have found a home in Amazon Prime Video.
Apoorva Mehta, who is the CEO of Dharma Production has said that the production house knew that the film will be special from the minute the family of Captain Batra approached Malhotra and the makers to tell his story.
Actor Sidharth Malhotra tweeted, “Heroes live on through their stories. We are honoured to bring to you the true story of the Kargil War hero, Captain Vikram Batra (PVC). A film with a long journey for me & a real life character I am proud to play.”
