Be it fans or critics or the general audience who has seen the film, everyone just cannot stop praising the actor for his fabulous performance in the film.
Along with Sidharth, ever since the premiere of Shershaah took place last week, love and appreciation has been pouring in for the rest of the team as well.
Today, Lt. Gen (Retd) Syed Ata Hasnain who commanded the Indian Army’s 15 Army Corps in Kashmir praised Shershaah for its detailed research - from capturing authentic locations to depicting army ethics and behavior.
In a live chat with actor Sidharth Malhotra, Lt Gen. said,
“The scenes that the film has shown of the Kashmir valley are very authentic. I have lived half my life there, but I’ve never seen such authentic scenes being captured. Simple things like army officers not revealing their sources have stood out in the film.”
He further added,
“Some of the scenes that show the human aspect of a soldier are captured well. I hope that Shershaah sets a benchmark for other Bollywood films to make well-researched army films in the future.”

Applauding Sidharth’s performance, he told the actor ‘I would like to compliment you for really getting under the skin of an army officer. I have seen many army-based films over the years but no one has got it so right.”
