Sidharth Malhotra hopes to inspire youth with his upcoming film

Actor Sidharth Malhotra is going to have career revival with his soon to be released war movie 'Shershah'. The film is about the life and exploits of Kargil war hero, Captain Vikram Batra PVC. Through his actions, Cpt Batra remains a legend and a source of inspiration for youths who wish to walk similar path. Sidharth Malhotra hopes that his film 'Shershah' educates the new generation about Captain Batra and becomes a source of inspiration in the process.

He said recently, "When the Kargil war was actually happening in 1999, I was 13 or 14 and I vaguely remember the interviews on television. The iconic Vikram Batra interview when he said 'Yeh Dil Maange More'. It was a surreal experience, after so many years, to come and shoot this film. At that time, it was difficult to comprehend what I was watching on television. Now, after so many years....to see up close, and in detail, what the army does. The sacrifices they make, the difficulties they face, the life they lead for us to have this kind of freedom. I have immense respect for the armed forces."

About the hero he's portraying, Sidharth said, "I have seen both sides of him, met his friends and family. The way they talk about him, how endearing he was. He wanted to experience so many things and was so full of life. But he chose to give up all of it for his duty. Just to do his duty, till his last breath. That takes a different mind set, a different kind of training. The Indian army is one of the best armies in the world. Vikram Batra's heroic actions took the legacy further, and we hope with Shershaah, the legacy lives further on. Hopefully the film inspires many other youth like he did."
