According to an industry insider, “Apparently, Shah Rukh has done a cameo in Shershaah but it is all very hush-hush as the makers want to announce it at their own time. The biopic on the life of Kargil war hero, Captain Vikram Batra, has Sidharth Malhotra playing a double role in it - as Captain Batra and his identical twin brother Vishal. Kiara portrays Captain Batra's fiancée Dimple Cheema. Though the role essayed by SRK is small in terms of length and screen time, he plays a very significant role in the movie and in Captain Batra's life. SRK's character is a strong one and he is one of the people who shapes Captain Batra’s life in important ways – from his early life and military career to the Kargil war.”

“Shah Rukh is family to Karan so when the filmmaker narrated the role to him and requested him to come aboard, the super star gave an immediate nod. The makers required a top actor and who better than King Khan to enhance the scenes with his starry presence and make the movie look larger-than-life? He brings his own massive wealth of experience and knowledge to every part of any movie. Shah Rukh Khan himself debuted as an army officer Lt. Abhimanyu Rai in the TV series Fauji (1989),” the source shared further.
