Right from my childhood as a film fan and a patriot's son I resented the way Indian army was depicted in some of our Cinemas. Shershaah is that exception that makes my chest swell with pride for my soldiers.(1/2)

In an interview, Sandeep Shrivastava talked about how people have his feelings over the success of the project and said, “I am thankful to everybody, who is saying that the script is the real hero of the film! At the same time, I would say that I have been lucky in the sense that I got such a wonderful team for Shershaah. The entire team of Shershaah was just fabulous. They all were extremely supportive during the whole writing process for the film.”
Sandeep shared about the predicament of writing a script that people already know about he said, ” Writing Shershaah was extremely difficult because a part of this story is already known to the world. We know what Captain Vikram Batra did as an army officer, we know of his bravery and sacrifice for the country. What was not much known was, what kind of a person was he as a child, as a teenager, as a college student, who was he as a regular boy from Palampur? What kind of a personality was he? All That I got to know only when I started interacting with people who knew him. When I sat and started talking to them, I realized that I am not telling the story of just a war hero, but that of a wonderful human being too. The challenge was to strike the right balance between these two facets of his dynamic and arresting personality. It took time but eventually, everything fell into place, and we presented what Vikram Batra really was as an army officer, a son, a brother, a lover, a friend, and look how Sidharth Malhotra’s portrayal of him is winning everybody’s hearts!”
