Sidharth Malhotra-Kiara-Advani starrer Shershaah has been the talk of town, ever since its trailer dropped on July 25. Now, the film is garnering praises from all across. The latest celebrity to laud the film is none other than Bollywood's superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

Shah Rukh Khan took to his Twitter handle to appreciate the film, attaching a poster of the film to the post. The tweet began with King Jr's quote - "If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live."

He urged everyone to watch the film for ‘Sid’s solid performance’. Shah Rukh Khan went on to describe the movie as unfolding an ‘impactful story.’

Noted director Vishnu Varadhan has helmed the fictional account of the PVC awardee, Indian soldier and war hero Captain Vikram Batra who led the troops during the 1999 Kargil war and significantly contributed to India’s eventual victory in the war. The braveheart was eventually awarded with the highest wartime gallantry award Param Vir Chakra posthumously.

Shershaah has piqued the curiosity of film lovers for all the right reasons, the promise of career-best performance by Sidharth Malhotra, who will play the titular role, lilting soundtrack, breathtaking cinematography and unwavering and honest allegiance to the nuances and pulse of Batra’s personal and professional journey sans any chest-thumping display of hyper nationalism or jingoistic fervour. At the same time, it never ceases to be a visual paean to the noble sacrifices, passion, patriotism and heroism of the war heroes who have laid their lives for every Indian to live their own lives safely in turn.

It was released on Amazon Prime Video on August 12 after a long wait. The film has been garnering good critical reviews, besides cheers and oodles of appreciation from the netizens.

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan also shared his gratitude to the ladies of ‘Chak De India’ in another post. He also tagged the director Shimit Amin, producer Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj films, singer Sukhwinder Singh for his powerful and motivating rendition of the title track. The actor described the iconic sports drama, that turned 14 yesterday, as his ‘labour of love’. He thanked everyone for making him the ‘Gunda’ of the film.
