‘Shershaah’, the war-drama film based on the life of Captain Vikram Batra, is all set for its release on August 12 on Amazon Prime Video and the people are so excited as the well-executed trailer has created attention after its release. Apart from it, there have also been rumours on the relationship between Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani.
Recently, BollywoodLife did an interview with the director Vishnuvardhan and asked him whether Sidharth and Kiara are in fact dating. He was also inquired about how much big impact it had on his film.
Speaking to BollywoodLife, Vishnuvardhan said, “I’ll honestly tell you, that didn’t even matter to me while I was filming. It is not about Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra, for me, it is Captain Vikram Batra and Dimple (Dimple Cheema, his real-life love interest); they were playing the characters. For me, it didn’t matter – just because they’re in a real-life something or whatever is happening, it’s their personal life, it’s not going to help me for the film”.
“What really worked for me, if you see the trailer carefully, it’s the way Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani looked, their pairing is actually fresh – that’s what actually worked because they’re very close to the characters. For me, it doesn’t matter if it’s going to help or not (the relationship angle), as a maker, I don’t think that’s a factor as such. Whether on-screen they’re paying (the characters) and off-screen they’re romancing, it doesn’t matter to me”, he added.
