Vicky, in March, had tweeted that he was honoured to play Udham Singh in Shoojit’s film. In a statement, Shoojit said that Vicky is perfect for the role.
"I have been waiting to tell the heroic tale of Shaheed Udham Singh for a very long time. It is a story very close to my heart. For it, I needed an actor who could give his heart and soul to the film, be with me and tell the story together. Vicky fits the bill perfectly. I have seen his work and the dedication he brings to it. I'm very happy he is on board this project,” Shoojit said in a statement.
Sardar Udham Singh is written by Ritesh Shah and Shubendu Bhattacharya.
