Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani, who have joined hands together for the first time, will soon start shooting for the next schedule of their forthcoming film Shershaah. Based on the life of late Captain Vikram Batra, who fought bravely in the Indo-Pak war of Kargil in 1999, Shershaah is produced by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions.
While Sidharth Malhotra gets into the shoes of Captain Vikram Batra, Kiara Advani will be seen playing the role of his girlfriend, Dimple Cheema. The duo wrapped up the first shooting schedule of the biopic in Chandigarh followed by Dharamshala and now they are set to fly off to Kargil to commence the next schedule of the film.
Sidharth and Kiara will head off to Kargil along with the entire crew as some important scenes are expected to be shot there. We hear that the team will also be celebrating the Kargil Vijay Diwas there on June 26. Sidharth will reportedly be staying in Kargil for longer while Kiara will return after shooting her portion. Both the actors will reportedly also be spending some time with the soldiers to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the Kargil War.
Meanwhile, Kiara Advani is presently busy promoting her upcoming film Kabir Singh, co-starring Shahid Kapoor. She will next be seen in Dharma Productions’ Good News, which also features Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Kareena Kapoor Khan in prominent roles.
Sidharth Malhotra, on the other hand, will shortly be seen in Ekta Kapoor’s Jabariya Jodi, which reunites him with Parineeti Chopra after Hasee Toh Phasee (2014). His next release will be Marjaavaan, co-starring Tara Sutaria and Riteish Deshmukh.
