Ahead of the release of the upcoming film ‘Sardar Udham’, lead actor Vicky Kaushal unveiled new pictures of his fierce look as the freedom fighter.
One picture features Kaushal sporting long, messy hair while shackled in a prison. Another sees him in warm clothes amid an snowy scene.
In one caption, the 33-year-old actor also shared the story of the revolutionary. “1931, Prison, India. Udham Singh was in prison for possession of prohibited papers “Ghadr-i-Gunj” (“Voice of Revolt”). He was released later but under constant surveillance. Soon, he escaped to Europe and never got to return to India,” Kaushal wrote.
Directed by Shoojit Sircar, the film is a biopic on freedom fighter Sardar Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer in 1940. He assassinated the former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab in British India to avenge the killings of the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre in 1919.
‘Sardar Udham’ will also feature Amol Parashar as Bhagat Singh.
Slated for release during the Dussehra weekend, ‘Sardar Udham’ will stream on Amazon Prime Video on October 16.
