Post Uri: The Surgical Strike, there has been no looking back for Vicky Kaushal. For endorsements to plum projects, Vicky has it all.
As we all know Vicky Kaushal is all set to play Sardar Udham Singh, a famous Indian revolutionary on screen. Directed by Shoojit Sircar, Sardar Udham Singh is based on Udham Singh, who assassinated General Dyer for causing Jallianwala Bagh massacre in the year 1919.
In a recent interview to the leading publication, Shoojit Sircar has confirmed the release date of the film. As per the report, Sardar Udham Singh biopic will hit the screen on October 02, 2019. The director confirmed it in the interview and mentioned that the rest of the shooting will be done over the next couple of months.
"Yes, we will be releasing the film on October 02, 2020. Keeping in mind the remaining shoot schedule, post-production and the time required to complete the film, my producers and good friends Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar advised this date for a feasible release next year and I have decided to go with it," stated Shoojit Sircar.
On the other hand, a while Vicky had shared his first look as Udham Singh on Instagram and a scar on his face was quite visible in the pictures. While it might seem that the facial scar under his eye is the part of his character, it is actually real and occurred after the actor met with an accident on the sets of Karan Johar's Bhoot - Part One: The Haunted Ship for which he was filming. The scar was quite prominent and even though the makers of Sardar Udham Singh had no such idea in mind for Vicky's character, the director decided to go ahead with it without applying any makeup to cover it up.
The first shoot schedule had kicked off in January and was wrapped up by May, the next is about to start in October 2019 and will go on for a few months. The next schedule will be shot in the UK, Russia, Europe and North India.
Apart from Sardar Udham Singh, Vicky Kaushal has Bhoot - Part One: The Haunted Ship and Takht in his kitty.
