Vicky Kaushal bags Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming biopic film on Udham Singh
Raazi actor, Vicky Kaushal has bagged Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming biopic film on Udham Singh. According to media reports, he will be playing the role of freedom fighter Udham Singh in the movie. The movie is a biopic of Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer to avenge 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
After bagging the role in Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming film, Vicky Kaushal said, “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.”
When Shoojit Sircar was asked on casting Vicky Kaushal in his next movie, he said, “If you look at Vicky’s track record, he is taking brave steps and making some really 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 to be the obvious choice.”
The movie is expected to release next year.
He will be next seen in Karan Johar’s magnum opus ‘Takht’ alongside Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor.
