Sid nervous to be Vikram
Sidharth Malhotra has already one role of an army officer done and dusted, but the actor is nervous about playing Captain Vikram Batra, who died in the Kargil war, in his upcoming film.
“Movies have a great impact, they live for long. There is a pressure of living up to the idea of what their son has done. That is why we are taking more time to start the film. It is not a fictitious story that I want to jump into it. I hope whenever the film comes out the family is happy and proud,” Sidharth, whose Aiyaary released last month, told PTI.
He is, however, excited to star in his first biopic, with a double role. “This is my first biopic and I am super excited for it. He has a brother (twin Vishal) but the film is predominately about Captain Vikram,” the actor said.
Sidharth says the shoot for the film is expected to begin this summer. “I have started training in a way by going to border areas, meeting BSF jawans, seeing their lifestyle, discipline and training. So in my own head the little bit of homework has started by observing people,” said Sidharth.
His other film, Aashiqui 3, is currently in the scripting stage.
