Vicky Kaushal is currently newest actor to look out for. Always a talented actor, the year 2018 was a turning point for Vicky. Now, he is currently working for a horror comedy and has already started shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s ambitious next, a biopic on the freedom fighter Udham Singh in Russia. The movie was previously helmed by Irrfan Khan who could not do it because of health reasons. The movie is called Sardar Udham Singh.

Director Shoojit Sircar revealed that he really likes Vicky’s intensity which is perfect for this role. Udham Singh tracked down and killed General Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer who was responsible for the brutal Jallainwala Bagh massacre on April 13.

He said that since Vicky is Sikh, it is a huge responsibility for him to portray this brave fighter well. Singh was later hanged by the British government but he kick started the non-co-operation movement against the British.
