Kangana Ranaut, who has been engaged in a public war of words with producer and filmmaker Karan Johar for several years now, took to her Instagram story on Thursday morning to share some notes about the late captain. Vikram Batra and his recently released biopic Shershaah.
This time around, however, actor Thalaivi has nothing but good things to write about Karan Johar, produced Shershaah. The actor congratulated the crew on a “tribute” to the decorated officer. “National hero Vikram Batra was a Himachali boy from Palampur, very popular and loved soldier. When the tragedy happened, news spread like wildfire in Himachal, it slit through our hearts. As a kid, I remember being tormented for days,” read Ranaut’s first post.
Heaping praise on lead actor Sidharth Malhotra, Kangana penned, “What a glorious tribute @sidmalhotra. Congratulations to entire team. It was a big responsibility and you all excelled.” The team of Shershaah is yet to respond to the praise.
Shershaah has been receiving love from all quarters. The movie was lauded by south superstar Kamal Haasan as well. The actor had stated that watching Shershaah made his ‘chest swell with pride.’ “Right from my childhood as a film fan and a patriot’s son I resented the way Indian army was depicted in some of our Cinemas. Shershaah is that exception that makes my chest swell with pride for my soldiers. Thanks @DharmaMovies for promoting a talented director like @vishnu_dir. Congrats @SidMalhotra and @advani_kiara, excellent work,” Haasan’s post read.
Shershaah stars Sidharth Malhotra as Captain Vikram Batra, while his alleged companion Kiara Advani plays the fiancee of a decorated military man, Dimple Cheema. The war film is directed by first director Vishnu Vardhan, while it is funded by Dharma Productions.
