However, as if you are aware of the award given to the Shershaah movie, let’s briefly revise the amazing story of the Shershaah movie.

About Shershaah Movie

History

However, war stories can be as heartwarming as they can be heartbreaking. You see a soldier in uniform who has the courage to protect the nation from enemies and is willing to sacrifice his life for a million strangers. Moreover, there were casualties on both sides in the Kargil War of 1999 between India and Pakistan. Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani’s new film, Shershaah, focuses on this topic. Additionally, the film centers around the life and death of Captain Vikram Batra, who was killed in enemy crossfire while trying to save an injured colleague. Captain Vikram Batra was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra, India’s highest gallantry award, for his display of courage, bravery, and leadership during the Kargil War.

About the Story and Production

Shershaah, produced by Karan Johar and Shabbir Boxwala, celebrates all the little (and very important) details about the life of Captain Batra. Also, with its portrayal of his love interest Dimple (Kiara Advani) as well as its adaptation of Pepsi’s popular 90s slogan, ‘Yeh Dil Maange More’, 

Plus, Shershaah is a tearjerker that comes just in time for Independence Day.

Capt. Batra’s chemistry plays a significant role on both fronts of his life – personal and professional. Thanks to Karan Johar, Malhotra and Advani’s love story has become a Bollywood selling point. However, Malhotra’s role as a formidable officer in the Indian Army earns him points.

Shershaah Movie Cast

Films about war are more than just biopics. Both genres present extraordinary characters, but war films exhibit a nation’s collective strength, conveying a sense of victory and adrenaline. As per many people, Sidharth Malhotra was a little too vanilla in the role of Late Captain Vikram Batra movie. In college, when he was figuring out his life, his contribution made sense. As if to conform to the Bollywood theme of the film, actress Kiara Advani added to its character. There are several other cast members to keep an eye out for in Shershaah, including Shiv Pandit, Nikitin Dheer, Himmanshoo A. Malhotra, and Anil Charanjeett.

Apart from the Shershaah movie, there were a number of other awardees as well. The list is as follows:
