Vicky Kaushal starrer ‘Sardar Udham’ helmed by Shoojit Sircar will be releasing in 2021.
National Award Winner: Vicky Kaushal is all set to be seen as the Indian Freedom Fighter Udham Singh in the film titled Sardar Udham that will be directed by Shoojit Sircar. For the uninitiated, Udham Singh was the Indian who assassinated General Michael O’ Dwyer for the ruthless Jallianwala Bagh massacre later ordered in Amritsar in 1919. The shooting for the film took place at various locations in Russia, London, parts of Ireland, Germany and also India. Vicky’s 1st look from the sets was also unveiled by the filmmakers last year.
Now, the release date of Sardar Udham has been made public and it is all set to hit the screens on January 15, 2021. The film is a Rising Sun Film Production, co-produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar. As for now, the movie has got a solo release as no films have been announced for that date.
Sometime back while talking about working with Shoojit in Sardar Udham, Vicky had told ANI,
“It’s a surreal feeling because it’s like a dream come true as I am finally getting to work with him. I have always been a big admirer of how Shoojit sir looks at his stories. The way he is looking at the character (Udham Singh) and the world is extraordinary as well as beautiful. Honestly, that’s something that will take time to sink in.”
On the other hand, director Shootjit said,
“If you look at Vicky’s track record, he is taking brave steps and making some fabulous choices. I wanted an actor who is ready to give his heart and soul to the film. Plus, he is a Punjabi boy and my film is a story of a Punjabi man. So, in many ways, he turned out to be the obvious choice.”
Just last year, Vicky Kaushal earned fame for his work in Uri: The Surgical Strike.
