Reflecting on the experience, Vicky shared, "In 2018, before we started filming URI, I was trained by the 7 Sikh Regiment. Unki obstacle training drills ki yaadein taaza ho gayi… always feels great to get a pat on your back by the real heroes! "
'Sam Bahadur,' directed by Meghna Gulzar, is set to hit theaters on December 1. The film, centered around the life of India's first Field Marshal, Sam Manekshaw, features Vicky Kaushal in the titular role and stars Fatima Sana Shaikh. Fans can anticipate a gripping cinematic experience, given Vicky's dedication to his preparation and the collaboration with the Indian Army to bring authenticity to his portrayal.
