Kangana recalls that the Captain was very popular and loved by all in Himachal and the news of his martyrdom spread like wildfire across the state.
Kangana Ranaut, who has often bashed the Karan Johar champ, extended an olive branch by praising Sidharth Malhotra for Shershaah. She called his performance a 'glorious tribute' to Captain Vikram Batra.
Remembering the soldier who died in the line of duty during the Kargil War of 1999, Kangana said that Captain Batra was a Himachali boy from Palampur. Like shown in the film, he was very popular and loved across Palampur.
Kangana said that the tragedy left her tormented for days. "When the tragedy happened, news spread like wildfire in Himachal, it slid through our hearts," the actress shared.
She then shared a BTS picture of Sidharth from the sets of Shershaah and called it a 'glorious tribute'. "It was a big responsibility and you excelled," she sang in his praise.
