Sidharth Malhotra recently returned to the sets of his forthcoming film Shershaah and he shared a BTS picture from the sets of the film on his Instagram profile on Tuesday. In the pictures, the actor can be seen along with a crew member, who can be seen wearing PPE kit. Sidharth captioned his post: "Soldier back at work!" He accompanied his post with the hashtags #OnTheSets and #Shershaah. Shershaah is a biopic on war hero Captain Vikram Batra, who died in the Kargil War and was honoured with the Param Vir Chakra posthumously.
