To get to know more about Captain Vikram Batra’s life, Sidharth Malhotra visited the captain’s family in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh. The parents were keen on wanting Sidharth Malhotra to act as Captain Vikram Batra because he looked a lot like him. Sidharth learned a lot about Captain’s characters as he went through the stuff owned by him. He learned that Captain Vikram Batra had two sides. One was the funny, jovial, ‘yaaron ki yaar’ and a social butterfly. And the other side was a dedicated, hardworking, fearless captain who left no stone unturned to protect his people when in danger.
