One of Vicky Kaushal’s most awaited films, Sam Bahadur, has been given a release date. The actor shared a clip on Thursday in which he is seen walking in uniform, with his back to the camera with two columns of soldiers on either side of him. The video ends with the words, “In theaters. 12/01/2023,” and fades to reveal the film’s title card. In the caption, Vicky Kaushal wrote, “365 days left…#SamBahadur in theaters 12/1/2023,” and tagged the film’s team. For the ignorant Sam Bahadur is the biopic of late Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw and is directed by Meghana Gulzar.
Responding to the post, Vicky Kaushal’s father Sham Kaushal said, “All the best Puttar. Proud of you. God bless the film and the entire team with all success.” Director Aditya Dhar said, “Angaar,” with fire emojis and actor-director Anand Tiwari dropped celebration emojis.
Last month, Vicky Kaushal shared a post when we were making a schedule for the film. He shared a few pictures and a clip of himself from the shoot of Sam Bahadur. In one picture, Vicky Kaushal stands next to director Meghna Gulzar and smiles. The two are seen bonding in matching custom pullovers with “Sam Bahadur” written on them.
In the other photos, the team is seen celebrating the end of filming. Vicky Kaushal wrote: “After more than two months of relentless work across five cities… here’s a schedule for the Bahadurs. Few more cities and a few more months. See you soon team, to continue our journey of making Sam Bahadur.”
Before that, Vicky Kaushal had shared a video with filmmaker Meghana Gulzar and co-star Sanya Malhotra as they started shooting for the project. In the caption, he said: “Only gratitude as we embarked on this extremely special journey.”Sam Bahadur Filming now!”
On Meghana Gulzar’s birthday, Vicky Kaushal also shared a post welcoming Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh to the project. He said, “It’s a very special day for us as we celebrate our director Meghna Gulzar’s birthday and welcome leading ladies Sanya Malhotra as Silloo Manekshaw & Fatima Sana Shaikh as Smt. Indira Gandhi to the Sam Bahadur family!” Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh were earlier seen together in Dangal.
Before Sam Bahadur, Vicky Kaushal will be seen in Govinda Naam Mera with Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani.
