Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani are winning hearts with their performance in the latest film Shershaah which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The film based on PVC Captain Vikram Batra's life also had a stellar supporting cast namely Shiv Panditt, Nikitin Dheer, Anil Charanjeett, Shataf Figar, Sahil Vaid among others. However, Sahil seems to not be that happy with the response he got for his role as Amit Sud aka Sunny in Shershaah.

The actor told Zoom that some actors who featured in the movie set their egos aside to play smaller roles. Sahil went on to say that all the actors agreed to do smaller parts to pay tribute to Vikram Batra.

Vaid added, "That is why I did this movie as well and now I am realising I should not have done this movie, people are not even talking about what I have done in the film."

The actor went on to say that he owes it to Dharma Productions as they allowed him to play a pivotal role in both Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya featuring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt as protagonists. 

However, the actor took to his Instagram story and clarified that he has been misquoted. He wrote, "I don’t generally like clarification in life but I have come across a few articles which say I ‘regret’ doing Shershaah. This is totally false and taken out of context, I have been misquoted here. Be careful what you read guys. Love <3."

On Monday, Sahil had shared a photo posing with the real-life Amit Sud whom he portrayed onscreen. The actor wrote, "Meet the real Amit sud A.K.A Sunny paji, who inspired our very own war hero Captain Vikram Batra to follow his dreams. We win wars in mysterious ways, and if it wasn't for this smooth-talking lawyer, our Shershaah would have been in the Merchant Navy and point 4875 would not be ours today. To the unsung hero who made a hero out of our hero. Thank you, sir. Jai Hind."

Shershaah is directed by Vishnu Varadhan.
