Moreover, Karan Johar is touted to join hands with Shabbir Boxwala to co produce the film under his production banner Dharma Productions. The film will be helmed by debutante director Vishnu Vardhan. An official announcement about the further details of the film will be made soon.


The real girlfriend of Vikram Batra was keen to feature her love story in the film, which led the makers of the film to cast Kiara opposite Sidharth as his love interest.


Meanwhile, Kiara Advani last featured in Karan Johar's Lust Stories which portrayed her role as a teacher in the film. The actress will also be seen in Kalank wherein she plays a guest appearance.

Besides Vikram Batra biopic, Sidharth Malhotra is likely to be seen in the title role of a sports biopic based on the life of the legendary cricketer Baloo Palwankar. The actor is currently in talks with the makers of the film.


For the uninitiated, Vikram Batra was conferred with the prestigious Param Vir Chakra for his bravery during the Kargil war.
