The Shershaah trailer was recently launched at Dras (Ladakh) on the eve of Kargil Vijay Diwas, observed every year on July 26. While Sidharth Malhotra essays Captain Vikram Batra, Kiara Advani plays Vikram Batra’s fiance, Dimple Cheema. Sidharth has managed to impress the majority of the audience with his portrayal in the trailer, however, those who have seen LOC: Kargil, couldn’t stop comparing Sidharth’s performance with Abhishek Bachchan’s in JP Dutta’s 2003 war film.
A fan lauded Abhishek’s performance as Captain Vikram Batra and felt that Jr AB was way better than Sidharth in Shershaah trailer. “#ShershaahTrailer is awsm. No offense to Siddharth malhotra (awsm actor did a good job ) but I think @juniorbachchan played Capt. Vikram batra (pvc) way better in #LocKargil movie. (Was more energetic especially in that dialogue – ye Dil mange more , Durga Mata ki jai),” read the tweet.
Another fan also shared similar sentiments on Sidharth’s performance and tweeted, “Just watched #ShershaahTrailer starring @SidMalhotra but wanna tell everyone that No one can match effort/energy putten by @juniorbachchan in 2003 LOC:Kargil movie. He is the one and only reel life Vikram Batra. Always gives goosebumps while seeing and listening his dialogue.”
Reacting to both the fans on Twitter, an overwhelmed Abhishek replied to them with nothing but folded hands. JP Dutta’s LOC: Kargil also featured Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan, Suniel Shetty, Sanjay Dutt and others.

Sidharth recently confessed nervousness as he gears up for the release of Shershaah, his ambitious new film slated for an OTT release on August 12. This is the first time he is playing a real-life hero and the protagonist happens to be Param Vir Chakra recipient Captain Vikram Batra, hero of the Kargil War.
“I was aware his family would watch the film, and that made me nervous. We wanted them to watch the film,” Sidharth said. There was an element of anticipation too, for the actor. He tells you Shershaah is “a dream that started five years ago”, and talks of how the project changed a few hands before Karan Johar and Dharma Productions took it up, to ready it for release.
