Director Shoojit Sircar is currently shooting his next directorial on Sardar Udham Singh biopic. And the first stills from the film sets are out now.
The pictures shows Vicky Kaushal who is essaying the role of the freedom fighter in the biopic, in a winter look on the sets in Russia. The hair, the clean shaven look, that scar below his one eye… well, it’s safe to say that this first-look from the sets of Sardar Udham Singh has certainly piqued our curiosity to watch what masterpiece Vicky and Shoojit have in store for us.
Earlier this week, the Udham Singh biopic team was shooting for the film in St Petersburg. Talking about the shoot in Russia, Shoojit said, “This is my first period film and it’s hard to create that environment and these characters that are a part of our history. The Russians love India. They love Raj Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Mithun Chakraborty. If you want something you only sing ‘Jimmy Jimmy’ from Disco Dancer.”
The film also revealed that the film will be shot on the outskirts of London, parts of Ireland and Germany and India. “We will be shooting for six-seven months, all through the year during different seasons. The film is scheduled for a 2020 release,” he added.
Recently, the actor came to town after wrapping up the first schedule in Russia. Talking about cast Vicky for the role of Udham Singh, the director said, “There’s a burning intensity and anger that I saw in Vicky’s eys during our first meeting itself, that convinced me he was the one right man to play Udham. And since Vicky is also from Punjab, a Sikh family, it’s a huge responsibility for him too.”
