Again during an interview the actor told, “Vikram Batra’s life story will inspire you and bring a smile on your face. I am really excited to play the character and the shoot commences this year”. Sidharth also added, “This is my first biopic and I am super excited for it.
He has a brother but the film is predominately about Captain Vikram. We are planning how to cleverly deal with it (double roles). He impacted so many people in the Army. I won’t say he is a personality that everybody knows but I felt it was a story that needed to be told. I found his story fascinating”.
Vikram Batra’s biopic will be released in 2020
Sidharth is also currently shooting for his upcoming film ‘Marjavaan‘ directed by Milap Zaveri and starring alongside Rakul Preet Singh, Ritiesh Deshmukh, and Tara Sutaria. Later he will also be seen on silver screen this year in ‘Jabariya Jodi’ starring alongside Parineeti Chopra.
The film is expected to go on floors in July while the biopic is slated to releases in 2020.
