Sidharth Malhotra plays the titular role in Vishnu Varadhan’s film, which also stars Kiara Advani, Shiv Panditt, Raj Arjun, Pranay Pachauri, Himanshu Ashok Malhotra, Nikitin Dheer, Anil Charanjeett, Sahil Vaid, Shataf Figar, and Pawan Chopra.
Shershaah’s trailer, which is based on a true incident, honours Captain Vikram Batra’s (PVC) valour and gallantry during the Kargil War. It’s the story of a soldier who became a legend for future generations, not just an inspiration.
Captain Batra, faithful to his codename ‘Shershaah,’ battled till his last breath and displayed unwavering heroism in driving enemy soldiers out of Indian territory in one of the most difficult mountain combat missions, which helped India win the Kargil War in 1999. Shershaah is Amazon Prime Video’s 37th direct-to-service film in a short period of 15 months, arriving just in time for Independence Day.
Viewers will get a preview of some re-created imagery from the Kargil war in the roughly three-minute-long clip. The interesting teaser teases strong performances from all of the actors, as well as enthralling dialogues, stunning images, and a compelling tale. The trailer has it all, from powerful background music that complements the video’s speed to some intense performances, making it a must-watch.
Captain Vikram Batra sacrificed his life in the service of the nation during the Kargil War in 1999, recapturing Indian territory from Pakistani intruders. He was awarded the title of ‘Sher Shah’ (Lion King) for his incredible bravery. The film, which is set in the 1990s, will also provide an insight into the era of naive romance, emphasising the chemistry between the leading couple- Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani.
Shershaah is directed by Vishnu Varadhan and produced by Dharma Productions and Kaash Entertainment. The film will be available on Amazon Prime Video on August 12, 2021.
