Vicky Kaushal said,’Running my fingers thru the bullet holes at Jallianwala Baug, little did I know that 1 day I’d get a chance to bring alive the lesser known martyr, UDHAM SINGH. #SardarUdhamSingh @ShoojitSircar @ronnielahiri #SheelKumar @writish #ShubenduBhattacharya @filmsrisingsun @sardarudham’.
Produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, the film is a Rising Sun Films production.
The movie is written by Ritesh Shah and Shubendu Bhattacharya.
Udham was responsible for assassinating Michael O’Dwyer, the former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab in British India in 1940, in order to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919. Singh lived five years in various cities, including Chicago and New York City. He travelled to Europe as Frank Brazil (a pseudonym he gave himself). He survived working as a carpenter, railway line worker and labourer before he made his way back to Punjab in 1927.
Vicky was last seen in ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’.
