As he films Sam Bahadur with Meghna Gular, actor Vicky Kaushal recounts a touching tale of optimism and aspirations coming true.
Vicky remembered how much he wanted to play Field Marshal Sam Maneckshaw in the director’s Sam Bahadur when he shared a photo with Meghna Gulzar.
The Sam Maneckshaw biopic would be Vicky’s second collaboration with Meghna; the two had previously worked together on the spy thriller Raazi, which also starred Alia Bhatt and catapulted Vicky to popularity.
Vicky Kaushal wrote, “6 years ago, in 2017, while Shooting for ‘Raazi’ here in Punjab, on this terrace…@meghnagulzar briefly mentioned #SamBahadur for the first time as one of her future projects. Quietly in my heart, I sent out a wish to the universe…to one day be considered for the role…Today…sitting on the same terrace with Meghna, as we are set for an all-nighter, shooting for a beautiful episode from Sam’s life. Living Sam is probably the most magical journey I’m on as an Actor!”
Director Meghna Gulzar also replied to the post. She wrote, “Couldn’t have asked for a better deja vu @vickykaushal09!”
Sam Manekshaw, India’s first field Marshal, is the subject of the biopic Sam Bahadur, which also features Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra.
The team is occupied with finishing the last phase of production because the movie won’t be released until December 1st, 2023.
