“Vikram Batra’s life story will inspire you and bring a smile on your face. I am really excited to play the character and the shoot commences this year,” Sidharth said in a statement.

The Kargil hero was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra – India’s highest war-time gallantry award.

The film will be produced by Dharma Productions and Shabbir Boxwala and will be directed by Vishnu Varadhan from a story written by Sandeep Srivastava.

Karan tweeted that it was time to relive Yeh Dil Mangey More — Batra’s oft-quoted phrase.

He described it as “the true story of bravery and patriotism – the chronicles of Kargil war hero Vikram Batra”.

“True stories are always the best stories to tell,” Karan had tweeted before the announcement.
