Our country is full of real heroes, I am proud to tell their stories on reel: Vicky Kaushal on turning the poster boy for patriotic films & Sardar Udham



Vicky Kaushal and director Shoojit Sircar have taken the responsibility of retelling the heroic story of our freedom fighter Sardar Udham Singh in the biopic 'Sardar Udham', set for an OTT release. Days before its much-awaited release, Vicky, Shoojit and producer Ronnie Lahiri sit down with PeepingMoon to revisit history. Biopics are no mean feat. It takes a lot to recreate an era that is lesser-known.

Talking to us about transporting the audience to a different era, Vicky, Shoojit, and Ronnie decoded what went behind making Sardar Udham, being the last film to show the untouched Jallianwala Bagh and telling the stories of real-life heroes on the reel, celebrating their unspoken journeys. Vicky also shed the light on how he reacts to his new fetched tag as the 'poster boy of patriotic films' with a lineup of Raazi, Uri, Sardar Udham & Sam Manekshaw biopic.
