The first look of Vicky Kaushal in Sam Manekshaw’s biopic was released in 2019 marking Sam’s death anniversary, paying him a tribute. Last year, the makers also revealed the second look of Vicky Kaushal and it also left one stunned as Vicky resembles the Field Marshal— a mirror image.
The reactions the film’s announcement and Vicky Kaushal’s look in ‘Sam Bahadur’ received testify that Manekshaw’s legendary status, in war and life, are fondly remembered and still remain relevant to this day.
Excited to embark on this journey says director Meghna Gulzar, “He was a soldier’s soldier and a gentleman’s gentleman. They don’t make men like Sam Bahadur anymore. I’m so honoured to be telling his story with Ronnie Screwvala and the incredibly talented Vicky Kaushal. On the Field Marshal’s birth anniversary, his story has got its name. I couldn’t be happier.”
