Sidharth Malhotra introduces Chris Pratt to his film Shershaah, Guardians of the Galaxy star responds: ‘I can say you’re an action hero for sure’
Amazon Prime Videos The list of terminals features Chris Pratt in a never-before-seen avatar. In the series, the actor plays a Navy SEAL named Lieutenant Commander James Reece. In a new video shared by the streaming platform on Saturday, Pratt is seen in conversation with Sidharth Malhotra, whose Shershaah is streaming on Amazon Prime Video. In the film, Malhotra played the role of Captain Vikram Batra, who gave his life during the Kargil War in 1999.
He told Pratt about everything that helped make Shershaah “as authentic as possible.” He also talked about filming in Kargil and the sense of responsibility he felt as soon as he put on the Indian Army uniform. “I think as soon as you play a character who is in the armed forces of the country you’re in, it gives you a bit more sense of responsibility to make it feel more authentic. It comes with a lot of hard work and preparation before the audience sees it,” he said and asked Chris Pratt to reveal how he prepared for The Terminal List.
Pratt said it was “a real honor and privilege.” He revealed that in the show’s pilot, he is joined by former Navy SEALS in a scene that sees him leading his team through the tunnels of Syria.
He also shared that the show is written by an actual Navy SEAL. However, unlike Shershaah, The Terminal List is entirely fictional. “It’s not based on real events. He (the writer) crafted this fictional story with a very strong point of view of someone who has been in this world, walked this road. We picked all the real Navy SEALs to play all my men in the tunnels. These men on the move, in the way they operate, we haven’t had to teach them anything except a few tricks of the trade, like how to hit a goal, how to know where the camera is. All the physicality of their action and movement is authentic because they are former Navy SEALS,” Pratt revealed.
During the chat, Sidharth revealed he was a big fan of the action genre, and Pratt showered him with praise for his physique. “I can tell you’re an action hero for sure. Just look at this guy,” he said, flexing his biceps. Later, he said they should work together.
The terminal list began streaming on Amazon Prime Video from July 1.
