Mumbai: Sidharth Malhotra’s last release ‘Aiyaary’ saw him and Manoj Bajpayee play soldiers fighting for their county.
Now Sid is back in the zone as he has left to Kashmir for his upcoming biopic on Captain Vikram Batra, a martyr from the Kargil war.
“Sidharth has been in touch with Vikram’s twin brother, Vishal, who is on board to offer inputs to the story. His girlfriend Dimple Cheema has also helped the team with the research as, besides Vikram’s valour, the film will also explore their love story. The team is aiming to wrap up the film by the year-end,” a source revealed to Mumbai Mirror.
“Prep will include training in horse-riding and shooting. Sidharth will play the double role of Vikram and Vishal,” added the source.
The biopic is scheduled to go on floors in June and is tentatively titled ‘Kargil: Sher Shah’ based on the martyr’s code name during the war.
