He also compared Kiara to South actress Nayanthara, with whom he has worked in the Tamil films Badla and Arrabam.

When I worked with Nayan, she used to be so sharp and so intelligent and I felt the same way while working with Kiara. He is very smart and fast. All you have to do is give them a sign and tell them what it is and they catch it so fast,” Vishnuvardhan said. Shershaahexplores the untold stories of unsung heroes of the war.
