Siddharth Malhotra is dappling in the army zone quite frequently now as he gears up for his release Aiyaary and further in future he will be playing Captain Vikram Batra in a biopic. Vikram Batra is a war hero in Kargil war against Pakistan. Batra gave his own life to save the lives of a considerable number of soldiers on the battle field. Batra was honoured with a Param Vir Chakra in 1999 and is one of the most decorated martyr in Indian army. Siddharth Malhotra will be portraying him in the film which is in the scripting stage now.
Siddharth had a tough luck this year with A Gentleman but regained the success and accolades with Ittefaq also starring Akshay Khanna and Sonakshi Sinha. Ittefaq became a highly appreciated film and now Siddharth is donning the army uniform in Aiyaary. Aiyaary is a film about an army officer and his mentor’s relationship when the disciple goes rogue and it’s the job of the mentor to hunt him down for the sake of National security. Manoj Bajpayee will be playing the role of Siddharth’s mentor in this espionage thriller directed by master of the genre Mr. Neeraj Pandey.
Aiyaary will clash with Akshay Kumar’s much hyped Padman on Republic day 2018. Post Aiyaary Siddharth will be coming out with his thriller Drive also starring Jacqueline Fernandez. Director or the release date of the Vikram Batra biopic is not announced yet but it will see the light of day because film that resonate with patriotism are performing well on the box office. Siddharth’s own grandfather was a decorated army officer hence he feels more excitement regarding doing this film. No one in the Hindi film industry has exactly made a film on Kargil war as of yet hence this biopic can break that hault as well.
