Running the show alone or collaboratively is significantly challenging for the filmmakers. However, the filmmakers choose to run solo with the show considering the economics of the cinema. As reported earlier, Dharma Productions had teamed up with Shabbir Boxwala to produce Vikram Batra biopic titled Shershah starring Sidharth Malhotra.

However, latest reports suggest that Dharma Productions have bought all the rights of the film to produce it solely without any partnership with other filmmakers.

About the same, a source said to a leading entertainment portal, "Dharma Productions Private Limited is in the process of acquiring all intellectual property rights including copyright, any and all rights, title and interest in the film Shershah."

An official announcement on the same is awaited.

If the reports are to be believed, Sidharth Malhotra will play double role in the film, which is based on the life of the martyr Captain Vikram Batra who battled the Kargil war. The film also stars Kiara Advani opposite Sidharth as his girlfriend.

Meanwhile, Sidharth Malhotra is currently shooting for Jabariya Jodi opposite Parineeti Chopra in Lucknow. The film is based on the real incident of groom abductions that is prevalent in the northern part of India.

On the other hand, Dharma Productions have amazing forthcoming releases in the pipeline. A period film Takht featuring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor is slated for 2020 release. Another film titled Good News based on surrogacy starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan will release in 2019.
