The nation owes a great debt to Captain Vikram Batra who is arguably one of India’s greatest hero in the 1999 Kargil War. This posthumous recipient of the Param Vir Chakra led his men in highly dangerous close combat in what is the most difficult terrain in the world.
Batra repeatedly volunteered to take part in missions beyond the call of duty. Even when he was seriously injured he bravely fought on. There is now a mountain peak named after him in the Kargil region.
Captain Batra’s life is being made into a movie featuring Sidharth Malhotra in the lead role. This is not the first movie to be made on the life of this hero. In 2003 the movie LOC Kargil was released with Abhishek Bachchan playing the role of Captain Batra.
