Mumbai: ‘Shershaah’, based on the real-life story of Param Vir Chakra winner Captain Vikram Batra, has been released and is being liked a lot among the audience. Sidharth Malhotra played the role of martyr Captain Vikram Batra in Shershaah. But, now it has come to light that Salman Khan had suggested another actor’s name to the makers for ‘Sher Shah’. Actually, Salman Khan wanted his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma to play the role of Captain Batra. For this, he also suggested the name of Aayush Sharma to the makers. But, this wish of Salman Khan could not be fulfilled due to some reasons.
Shershaah’s producer Shabir Boxwala has revealed that Salman Khan had approached him about ‘Sher Shah’ and suggested his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma for the character of martyr Captain Vikram Batra. But, the producers had already talked to Captain Batra’s family about it and suggested Siddharth’s name to them. Siddharth Malhotra played this role after getting the consent of Captain Batra’s family.
Talking about this to Mid-Day, Shabbir Boxwala says- ‘When Salman contacted me, during that time I was in talks with Junglee Pictures. He wanted Shershaah to be Aayush Sharma’s debut film, for this he also wanted to partner with me. However, by then his family extended their support to the idea of Siddharth playing the role of a Param Vir Chakra awardee. After which a meeting was also arranged between Siddharth and Captain Batra’s family.
Shabbir Boxwala further says – ‘It would have been highly immoral for any other actor to remove Siddharth Malhotra from the film. When Captain Batra’s family gave me the rights, it was a big moment for me. He showed a lot of faith in me and I didn’t want to go wrong at any step. So I explained to Salman, who understood the situation. Ayush also gave his consent to this and said that it can be difficult for him to do a double role in the very first film.
Apart from Siddharth Malhotra, Kiara Advani is also in an important role in Shershaah. Who is playing the character of Captain Vikram Batra’s fiancee Dimple Cheema in this film. Apart from this, Shiv Pandit, Raj Arjun, Pranay Pachauri, Himanshu Ashok Malhotra, Nikitin Dheer, Anil Charanjit, Sahil Vaidya, Shataf Figar and Pawan Chopra are also in important roles in the film.
