Actor Sidharth Malhotra, who is on a break these days, was about to start his upcoming film, Kargil: Sher Shah, which is a biopic on Kargil martyr, Vikram Batra. The film was already in the pre-production stage and Sidharth also started prepping up for the same. But according to recent reports, the movie has now been delayed as the actor feels it’s a huge responsibility to portray the role of late martyr. If sources are to be relied upon then Sid will first do Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming film and then he’ll commence Kargil: Sher Shah.

A source close to the actor informed a leading portal, “Sidharth Malhotra is having a rough phase at the box office. While A Gentleman and Aiyaary tanked at the ticket window, Ittefaq just about managed decently. Hence getting into the shoes of a personality like Vikram Batra is a huge responsibility. For the same, the actor needs more time. Therefore the team has put the movie on hold and Malhotra instead will begin work on Ekta’s film soon.”
