Vicky Kaushal, who is on a spree of signing interesting films, is presently working on Sardar Udham Singh, a biopic on revolutionist Udham Singh. The film, which was earlier releasing on October 2, 2020, now has a fresh date and will hit the theatres on January 15, 2021.
80 years ago from now, on March 13 1940, Sardar Udham Singh single-handedly assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer, in order to seek revenge for the brutal Jallianwala Bagh massacre in London, therefore sparking the Indian Freedom movement.
The makers believe that such a significant story deserves justice onscreen, and hence have decided to present Sardar Udham Singh in 2021 as a solo release! It casts October fame Banita Sandhu alongside Vicky, and has been produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar. Vicky announced the film on March 4, last year.
