Playing Vikram Batra toughest role: Sidharth

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]alking about the biopic, actor Sidharth Malhotra said: “We will start that (working on the biopic) but before that, there is a love story of Balaji (Balaji Motion Pictures) in which I am working with Parineeti Chopra. We will start shooting for that film in the next two days in Lucknow. We will announce the title and other details of the film soon.”

“Then I will do the biopic on Vikram Batra. It is the toughest role of my life,” added the actor, who unveiled ‘The Webb Ellis Cup’ at the Rugby World Cup 2018 Trophy along with actor Rahul Bose here on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old said he needs to prepare more for the role. He finds it a huge responsibility to play Batra, who was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra — India’s highest military decoration awarded for displaying extraordinary acts of valour during wartime. The actor said it took him around two to three years to set up this film in terms of finalising the script and finding producers for it.
