It also stars Kiara Advani as Batra’s girlfriend. For the unversed, the duo made headlines ever since they were seen together back in 2019, at Karan Johar's party. It is said that the popular director played the cupid between the couple, and ever since then, Kiara and Sidharth have been making headlines. Not only this, before the lockdown struck the city, Kiara was seen on a lunch outing with Sidharth Malhotra and his parents at a popular restaurant in Bandra, Mumbai.
Speaking about the project, 'Shershaah’ is a true story of Kargil war hero, Captain Vikram Batra who died during the war in 1999. Set in the 90s, the film offers an insight into the age of innocent romance, showcasing the chemistry between the leading pair. In the poster, audiences get to see the rumoured lovebirds holding hands while Sidharth who plays Captain Batra gazes into Kiara's eyes, as she sits next to him while smiling.
The movie has been helmed by Vishnu Varadhan while Karan Johar, Hiroo Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Shabbir Boxwala, Ajay Shah and Himanshu Gandhi are producing the film. Kiara, who will be playing Sidharth's love interest in the film, was not seen in the first teaser of the film that was released a few days ago.
