Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani start Shershaah shoot

Bollywood stars Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani have started shooting for their forthcoming film Shershaah. The team commenced the first shooting schedule of the much-awaited movie in Chandigarh earlier today.

To be helmed by debutant Vishnu Varadhan, Shershaah stars Sidharth Malhotra in the role of Kargil war hero Vikram Batra, who was awarded the Param Vir Chakra, India’s highest war-time gallantry award, posthumously.

If reports are to be believed, Sidharth will be seen in a double role in the movie. Apart from playing the role of Vikram Batra, the Ittefaq (2017) will also essay the character of his twin Vishal Batra.

Malhotra is going through a rough patch as far as his professional life is concerned. His last few films tanked at the box-office, denting his image of a bankable actor. However, looking at his slate of upcoming films, we can say he might be back in the reckoning once again. Besides Shershaah, the handsome star will also be seen in Jabariya Jodi and Marjaavaan.

Kiara Advani, on the other hand, is being projected as the next big thing in Bollywood. The actress has some exciting projects on her platter, including Good News, Kabir Singh, Laaxmi Bomb and, of course, Shershaah.

Produced by Karan Johar under Dharma Productions, Shershaah is set to release next year.
