Sidharth Malhotra essays the role of Batra in the film, also starring Kiara Advani.
The first look posters of Shershaah were released on Malhotra's birthday in January this year. One of the posters shows the actor clad in uniform with a gun in his hand in the middle of action along with other soldiers.
Shershaah is directed by Vishnuvardhan and is made under the banner of Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.
A report by NDTV mentions Batra sacrificed his life during the Kargil War in 1999 at the age of 24.
Batra was often called the 'Sher Shah,' whose courageous efforts helped India emerge victorious in the Kargil War. Even with high fever and fatigue, Batra volunteered to head a party to the battlefront.
