Rumours, like always, fly thick and fast. But ETimes, like always, gets you the confirmed news. Contrary to reports, we have it that Shah Rukh Khan is not a part of ‘Shershaah’- no full-length role, no cameo. Some write-ups in February last year had even insisted that Shah Rukh had shot for the film.
A source close to the film has told us that the reports floating about SRK being a part of the film are wrong.
‘Shershaah’ producers, Karan Johar and Shabbir Boxwalla, dropped a teaser last week. The trailer is set to be released online on July 26, followed by the film on August 12. It has Sidharth Malhotra playing Captain Vikram Batra who sacrificed his life in the 1999 Kargil war.
For those who’ve come in late, ETimes brought you an interview with Captain Vikram Batra’s twin brother Vishal Batra on Friday wherein he spoke about Sidharth Malhotra playing his brother’s character in ‘Shershaah’ and a lot of other things about Captain Vikram Batra that we don’t know. If you haven’t seen that interview yet, click on the video above.
Kiara Advani plays the female lead in ‘Shershaah’ which has been directed by Vishnuvardhan.
