Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has taken a break from social media to finish work on his period film “Sardar Udham”, starring Vicky Kaushal in the title role. Sircar is working on post-production of the period drama.
Shoot for the film, which was shot in Russia, was completed on December 27 last year and was awaiting post-production work before the lockdown started. Now, the director is on a mission to complete his film.
Vicky will bring alive the story of martyr Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer, the former lieutenant governor of Punjab in pre-Independence India, to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre of Amritsar in 1919. Singh was subsequently tried and convicted of murder, and hanged in July 1940.

When nature beckoned, We listened… We switched gears, From fast forward to slow motion… Now, there is a call again, An excitement, yet a caution And a hunger to reboot, With this feeling We begin, again… #SardarUdhamSingh Post production set to #BeginAgain, tomorrow- 8th June.
‘Sardar Udham’, produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, is being lined up for a theatrical release. Sircar’s latest film, ‘Gulabo Sitabo’, featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana, released digitally recently.
