In an exclusive interview with News18, the Student Of The Year actor said, “It felt like the real Vikram and Dimple, in some parallel universe, came together. Shershaah has given me so much love and a wife too, so what else do you need from a film? I think it was meant to be. Much like us, Vishal Batra (Vikram Batra’s win brother) was extremely emotional and happy when he came to our wedding.” Dimple and Vikram refer to the names of the characters of the 2021 film, Shershaah.

Sidharth, who was ecstatic about the win said, “I’ve been here for only ten years. Shershaah will always remain a very special film to me. Through the film, the reel has turned into reality. It’s an unforgettable film and experience, and I’m grateful to Captain Vikram Batra’s family for trusting us and to the audience for giving us that love both onscreen and off-screen, today.” Happy to have received his award from Vishal, Sidharth continued, “I’m so close to the Batra family. We met on so many occasions. Our love for Captain Batra lingers on.”
