On August 12, 2021, Sidharth Malhotra proved his mettle with his effortless performance in the war film Shershaah. Directed by Vishnuvardhan, the actor portrayed the role of Captain Vikram Batra who sacrificed his life during the 1999 Kargil War. Backed by Dharma Productions, Shershaah also starred Kiara Advani in a key role.
Sidharth Malhotra on Saturday penned a heartfelt note on the second anniversary of Shershaah and thanked his fans for accepting him as Captain Virkam Batra. In a Hindi note, the actor wrote, "Very few actors get the opportunity to play a real-life character who is immortal like the sunshine. However, I got this chance. Playing Captain Vikram Batra on screen helped me to live more. I lived his love for the country, his courage, his expertise, and his cheerfulness and finally Shershaah came into the picture."
The note continued, "Two years ago today you all showered your love to Shershaah. And whenever I remember this date my heart cannot stop but say Yeh Dil Maange More."
