“Humbled and beyond delighted to have received such high praise for #Shershaah from our Chief of the Army Staff, Gen Naravane,” Shabbir Boxwala posted alongside a photo of the letter. Years of dedication have paid off. Vikram Batra is still alive and well. “Long live the Indian Army!” exclaims the crowd.
Karan Johar's Dharma Productions co-produced Shershaah, directed by Vishnu Varadhan. Captain Vikram Batra, who gave his life during the 1999 Kargil War, is the subject of this film. Aside from the war, Shershaah focuses on Vikram Batra's personal journey, especially his relationship with Kiara Advani's fiancee Dimple Cheema.
Because most cinema halls were operating at 50% capacity and Mahrashtra had not authorised reopening, Shershaah, which was initially planned for theatres, then got released on OTT platform. Shershaah has been praised for portraying the Kargil war sensitively, without jingoism, and offering a real respect to Vikram Batra's valour.
