The Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani starrer Shershaah that is based on the life of Captain Vikram Batra is receiving unanimous love from the audience and critics,
But what pleases Kiara the most and that she feels is the team’s biggest win is that the biopic on Captain Vikram Batra has been highly appreciated by the Batra family. Asked if she has heard from Dimple Cheema yet, Advani — who plays Batra’s love interest says, “I messaged her after the film. This is an emotional movie for her. I wanted to respect her privacy. I know the songs have deeply touched her. When I met Captain Batra’s family after the film, they said I was exactly like Dimple. That moved me to tears.
The film’s post-credits reveal that after the Kargil War hero’s demise, Dimple decided to not marry. The actor says she is proud of their love story, rare as it was. “I believe in that kind of eternal love. It is aspirational for a generation like ours, which is more fast-paced.”
That brings us to her love life — Kiara is rumoured to be dating co-star Malhotra. Excited fans rooting for them have given them their hashtag #Sidiara. Advani says, “We are happy that our on-screen chemistry is appreciated. But I feel it’s our honest intention of playing Vikram and Dimple authentically is that matters most.
Shershaah is available on Amazon Prime video and is the perfect family weekend treat.
