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.

However, she says every other actor who read the film’s script before her thought it was lame.
“Whoever read Queen’s script before, they said it was the lamest script they’d ever seen,” she revealed in an interview on Viu for Signature Masterclass’ third season.
Talking about her experience of working on the Vikas Bahl directorial, she said, “Queen was a big party for everyone.
The director was a very big producer. He didn’t want anyone to stress over it and wanted everyone to have fun.
The process was very unusual and very different from any other set I’ve been on.”
“It turned out to be very good, but it could’ve gone the other way as well and the director was prepared for it.
It was a small-budget film and nothing was at stake from his end, and even I had nothing to lose as I had no career left,” she added.
Meanwhile, Ranaut’s latest release Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi has earned over Rs 91 crore at the domestic box office.
She will next be seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga and alongside her Queen co-star Rajkummar Rao in Mental Hai Kya. Ranaut has also announced her own biopic, which she’d direct herself.
