Amidst Tensions Between India and Pakistan, Reel Heroes Prep Up to Bring Alive ‘War Heroes’ on Screen

Actors like Sidharth Malhotra and Adivi Sesh will don the uniform to play Indian soldiers who fought for their country till their last breath.Back in 2003, actor Abhishek Bachchan brought Kargil war hero Captain Vikram Batra to life in J.P. Dutta’s “LOC Kargil”.
The army officer was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra — India’s highest gallantry award. Soon, Sidharth will be working on his biopic, directed by Vishnu Varadhan.Talking about the film, Sidharth had said: “It is the toughest role of my life. I feel it is an emotional responsibility to play that character because the family of Vikram Batra felt that I can play his role so, it is a big responsibility to present their story on the big screen.”
Director Sriram Raghavan and producer Dinesh Vijan, on the other hand, have teamed up for a biopic on Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, who was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra for the courage he displayed during the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war.”When I heard the story of Arun Khetarpal, I was inspired.
He is the youngest recipient of the Param Vir Chakra. What he did and the kind of life he lived was absolutely exemplary and unbelievable,” Vijan said in a statement.He said it is a huge responsibility to make a film with such an inspirational message.”Arun involves a lot of passion since we all are moved by it.We are doing our homework,” he added.
