The trailer of Vishnuvardhan’s upcoming movie ‘Shershaah’ was unveiled on Sunday on the occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas. The movie is about our Kargil hero Captain Vikram Batra, also called Shershaah. Actor Sidharth Malhotra will be playing the lead in the movie. After watching the trailer, fans compared Sidharth’s performance with Abhishek Bachchan in LOC: Kargil and stated that Abhishek was ‘way better’.
Abhishek Bachchan was starred as Captain Vikram Batra in JP Dutta’s 2003 movie, LOC: Kargil. While Sidharth did a good job, the audience still remembers Abhishek’s energetic performance and believes that he was the best ‘Reel life, Vikram Batra’.
A fan tweeted, “#ShershaahTrailer is awsm. No offense to Siddharth Malhotra (awsm actor did a good job ) but I think @juniorbachchan played Capt. Vikram batra (pvc) way better in #LocKargil movie. (Was more energetic especially in that dialogue – ye Dil mange more, Durga Mata ki Jai).” Abhishek instantly reacted to the tweet with a folded hands emoji.

A Twitter user commented on the tweet, “I concur, Found that zeal missing in the trailer. Junior Bacchan just aced it in LOC Kargil.”
Another fan recalled the energy in Abhishek’s performance and wrote, “Just watched #ShershaahTrailer starring @SidMalhotra but wanna tell everyone that No one can match the effort/energy putten by @juniorbachchan in 2003 LOC: Kargil movie. He is the one and only reel life Vikram Batra. Always gives goosebumps while seeing and listening to his dialogue.” Abhishek reacted to his tweet too with the same folded hand emoji.
Abhishek Bachchan loved Shershaah’s trailer. He retweeted Karan Johar’s tweet about the trailer and wrote, “Loved it!! Such a wonderful way to honor one of India’s bravest sons! Best wishes @karanjohar @vishnu_dir @SidMalhotra @advani_kiara @PrimeVideoIN #YehDilMaangeMore.”
