Veteran actor Kamal Haasan is the latest actor in the league to praise Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani starrer Shershaah. On Monday, the actor took to his Twitter handle sharing his views about the film and also spoke on how it’s a departure from other kinds of films made on the Indian Army.
He tweeted, “Right from my childhood as a film fan and a patriot’s son I resented the way Indian army was depicted in some of our Cinemas. Shershaah is that exception that makes my chest swell with pride for my soldiers.” Praising the film’s leads and Dharma Productions, Kamal added, “Thanks @DharmaMovies for promoting a talented director like @vishnu_dir. Congrats @SidMalhotra and @advani_kiara, excellent work (sic).”
