We have crossed halfway through the year 2021, and we have already witnessed many great movies on streaming platforms instead of theatres amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Talking about the best movies of 2021, we have films like The White Tiger, Sherni, Pagglait, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Nail Polish, Ludo, and Kaagaz. But one film that has overshadowed all of these great films is Shershaah, the biographical drama based on the life of Kargil War's hero, Captain Vikram Batra.
The film is receiving rave reviews from both critics and the audience. Apart from Vishnuvardhan's exceptional direction, the chemistry between the rumoured couple, Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani, is like the icing on the cake. Now, people are asking to give Sidharth the National Film Award for Best Actor for his performance in Shershaah. In a recent interview, the actor talked about the same and also opened up about his connection with his alleged ladylove, Kiara, in real life.
In an interview with ETimes, when Sidharth Malhotra was asked to name the things that he found extremely attractive in his Shershaah co-star, Kiara Advani's off-screen personality. The actor stated that he is an ordinary boy from Delhi and still isn't very much into the industry, which is quite common between him and Kiara. The actor explained, "I think even personally, there is a sense of regularness to her, which we both connect on. I am a boy who is from Delhi and I am not connected to the industry per se."
Going further in his interview, Sidharth Malhotra also added that both he and Kiara Advani have lives away from the limelight of industry, and it is something that connects them to a certain level, which both of them cherish. In his words, "We both have lives away from the industry, and that is something that we connect on and cherish. Sometimes you get so embroiled in all these things that you forget to have a regular life. I think both of us have regular lives and that's what we connect on."
At the end of his interview, Sidharth Malhotra also talked about his chances of winning the National Award, and the humble actor stated that he is not thinking about it at the moment. The actor added that he is happy that people love his performance, and he is just cherishing these moments to the fullest. He concluded, "That's so sweet, I am so happy that you think so (smiles). But right now I am just enjoying the fact that people are enjoying my work and the craft. I am not really thinking about it as of now, but just really soaking in the love and the appreciation that is coming to the film."
On August 15, 2021, Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani had celebrated the extremely special day of Independence Day together, and a video of them dancing to a song from their movie had gone viral on the internet. While on one side, Sidharth had looked handsome in his charcoal grey T-shirt and Camouflage Military jacket, on the other side, Kiara had donned a beautiful pink coloured saree. However, there's no denying that their chemistry has something special and natural that sets them apart from other on-screen couples.
Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra's film, Shershaah had released on August 12, 2021, on OTT.
