Sidharth started military training for the film in April. Before the official announcement of the movie, it was speculated that the title will be “Mera Dil Maange More” but later was changed to “Shershaah”. The movie has been shot in several locations like- Chandigarh, Palampur, Kargil-Ladakh and Kashmir.

Directed by Vishnuvardhan and co-produced by Karan Johar, the movie traces the life journey of Param Vir Chakra awardee and Army Captain Vikram Batra.

The film was earlier scheduled to release theatrically on July 3, 2020, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film will now release in theatres on July 2.
