Vicky Kaushal’s latest film Uri: The Surgical Strike was a blockbuster at the box office, giving him an excellent start of 2019. Last year was also a successful year with Vicky Kaushal when he played supporting roles in two of the highest-grossing Hindi films of the year, Raazi and Sanju. Vicky is now working on the director Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming project, in which he will play the lead role of the famous fighter Udham Singh.

The film Udham Singh is the biopic of a Punjabi revolutionary of the same name. He was known for assassinating the lieutenant governor of Punjab, Michael O’Dwyer, in 1940, as a revenge for the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar.

In a recent interview, the director of the film has talked about choosing Vicky for the lead role. Director Shoojit Sircar complimented Vicky for his bravery in making his decisions and how perfect Vicky is for the part. The director said he was looking for an actor that could play the character with all his heart and soul. Moreover, Vicky is a Punjabi man, which is perfect for a film of a Punjabi hero.
