Actor Sidharth Malhotra is ready to take up a military role once again after playing an army man in his recently released film ‘Aiyaary’.
He will soon be starting work on Kargil martyr Captain Vikram Batra’s biopic ‘Param Vir Chakra’.
On the biopic, Sidharth said, “A biopic needs to mean something. As an actor, I need to feel the connect. A biopic is not a fictitious story. It is based on a real person and I think one needs to handle that with a lot of sensitivity.”
“The character that I’ll be playing next is very sensitive and his story is also quite touching. When I was approached for the film, and they spoke to me about the character, I felt it means a lot to me and I have so much respect for him,” he added.
Before Sidharth, Abhishek Bachchan had played the same character in LOC Kargil.
This will be the first biopic that Sidharth will be starring in ever since he debuted in Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year.–CINEWS
