Sidharth gets candid about his first biopic

Sidharth Malhotra will soon be seen playing an army man in his next which is based upon Kargil martyr, Captain Vikram Batra. The actor recently opened up about his role in the upcoming biopic and shared about his own background, as his grandfather was in the army. He also said that he sent a picture of himself in the uniform to his dad, which made him very happy and proud of the Ittefaq star. "This story is based on the Kargil war and it's very inspiring and touching. I've never played a character that's real. I had heard of his story, but when I got into the details, I was amazed to learn about his life and journey," Sidharth said.

The actor further said, "You have to give it respect because we're talking about a martyr. That's more challenging than being compared. He is not a celebrity, so I have less to worry about in that regard, but I have to be sensitive, so that I do justice to the role and don't offend people. I feel very answerable to the family; they approached me for the role. I hope they feel satisfied and happy when the film releases."
