Sidharth Malhotra shot in Kashmir for the first time for Neeraj Pandey’s ‘Aiyaary’ (2018) and it seems he’s set to make a return for the forthcoming biopic on Vikram Batra, titled ‘Kargil: Sher Shah’.
Mumbai Mirror reports that the actor will be shooting in Kashmir as well as Ladakh, Chandigarh and the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun. A source says, “Sidharth has been in touch with Vikram’s twin brother, Vishal, who is on board to offer inputs to the story. His girlfriend Dimple Cheema has also helped the team with the research as, besides Vikram’s valour, the film will also explore their love story. The team is aiming to wrap up the film by the year-end”.
“Prep will include training in horse-riding and shooting. Sidharth will play the double role of Vikram and Vishal,” added the source.
Vikram Batra was an officer who, at 24-years-old went to Kargil as per orders. However, as the mission came to an end, he went to help out an injured junior officer but ended up with a bullet in his chest in the process.
