After the success of Uri: The Surgical Strike, Vicky Kaushal has been flooded with film offers. The actor will be seen in Shoojit Sircar’s Sardar Udham Singh and recently, while talking to a news agency, Vicky spoke about the film and his experience of working with Sircar.

The actor said, “It’s a dream come true for me to be working with Shoojit Sircar because it’s a very different process of acting and making a film when you are working with him.”

“This story and character really appealed to me and the way that Shoojit da wanted to present Uddham Singh… revolutionary to the audience. That really appealed to me. The take on it is really fresh and I am looking forward to it,” Vicky added.

The movie is about Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer, the former lieutenant governor of Punjab in pre-Independence India. He did this to take the revenge for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. The revolutionary was tried and convicted of murder and hanged in July 1940.

A few months ago, Vicky had shared his first look from the film. He posted on Instagram, “Running my fingers through the bullet holes at Jallianwala Baug, little did I realise that I would one day get a chance to re-live and depict the anger and anguish of the lesser known martyr, revolutionary… SARDAR UDHAM SINGH. #SardarUdhamSingh @shoojitsircar @ronnie.lahiri #SheelKumar @writish1 #ShubenduBhattacharya #RisingSunFilms @sadarudhamfilm.”

The movie is slated to release on 2nd Oct 2020.

Apart from Sardar Udham Singh, Vicky has movies like Bhoot: Part 1 – The Haunted Ship, Takht, and a biopic on Sam Manekshaw.
