Vicky Kaushal is all set to be a part of Udham Singh’s biopic directed by Shoojit Sircar. Vicky Kaushal received a lot of applause for his performance in URI: The Surgical Strike. Now the actor is gearing up to be a part of a freedom fighter’s biopic.
Shoojit 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 the story of a Punjabi man. So, in many ways, he turned out to be the obvious choice.”
Udham Singh was a freedom fighter who assassinated Micheal O’Dwyer who was a former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab of British India 1940 to avenge the terrible shootings at the Jallianwala Bagh. Vicky Kaushal was overwhelmed with this offer and he 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. Plus, it’s also a big honour for me that finally, I am going to be directed by him. Honestly, that’s something that will take time to sink in.”
