The Sam Bahadur biography starring Vicky Kaushal made waves when the lead was confirmed and the actor's look as the Field Marshal of India was shared on social media. Vicky stated recently that he is starting pre-production on the project, which will be directed by Meghna Gulzar (Raazi). Vicky Kaushal and Meghna Gulzar earlier worked together in the 2018 film Raazi. Moreover, Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh both play significant roles in the film.
Vicky Kaushal is known for his ability to create mysticism on screen. Following Sardar Udham, we've been waiting for the actor to demonstrate his acting talent once more. The wait appears to be over, as the actor revealed that he has begun filming on his new feature, Sam Bahadur. He will play Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in the movie. “Here we go Prep starts!!! #SAMBAHADUR . @meghnagulzar @rsvpmovies (sic),” he wrote.
Talking about the film, Vicky Kaushal once said, “I had always heard stories about Sam Bahadur from my parents, who hail from Punjab and have seen the 1971 war but when I read the script I was completely blown away. He is a hero and patriot who is still remembered and loved to this day, and capturing his spirit in the film is of the highest importance to me.”
After asking Meghna Gulzar, she said, "He was a soldier's soldier and a gentleman's gentleman. They don't make men like Sam Bahadur anymore. I'm so honoured to be telling his story with Ronnie Screwvala and the incredibly talented Vicky Kaushal. On the Field Marshal’s birth anniversary, his story has got its name. I couldn’t be happier.”
