In a span of few years, Vicky Kaushal has carved a niche for himself in the industry and enjoys immense popularity among fans today. It was Masaan that introduced him to the movie buffs but it was Uri: The Surgical Strike that made him a big name. He won the National Award for Best Actor and the movie established Vicky’s strong footing in Bollywood.
If you have been following his journey, you have a fair idea that the actor leaves no stone unturned to do justice to his characters. The actor has managed to impress the audience once again as he stepped into the shoes of revolutionary Sardar Udham Singh. The film is directed by Shoojit Sircar and marks the collaboration between Sircar and Vicky Kaushal for the first time. Vicky is seen as Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer, former lieutenant governor of Punjab, to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar in 1919.
As the trailer dropped a while ago, people were left asking for more. And the actor hasn’t disappointed his fans as he keeps sharing updates from his next movie. Vicky has been sharing various looks from his movie and it has left us intrigued. Here are three looks that made us go ‘Josh Is High, Sir’.
1. Somewhere In The Forests Of Europe View this post on Instagram
Vicky took to Instagram to share a new look from the movie and it seems like he has sunk his teeth into the character. We are completely convinced that the actor will nail the character of Sardar Udham Singh. The look dates back to 1933 when Udham Singh was spotted in Eastern Europe, braving the chills of -15°C.
2. Deadly Prison Look View this post on Instagram
Vicky recently shared a photo of himself as Sardar Udham from his prison days. Sharing the photo, Vicky wrote, “1931, Prison, India. Udham Singh was in prison for possession of prohibited papers ‘Ghadr-i-Gunj’ (‘Voice of Revolt’). He was released later but under constant surveillance. Soon, he escaped to Europe and never got to return to India. #SardarUdham #SardarUdhamOnPrime | Oct 16 (sic).”
3. Carried Scar Like A Badge Of Honour View this post on Instagram
In one of the early photos and in the trailer, people spotted a scar on Vicky’s face and speculated that he was hurt during the shoot. At the trailer launch, he clarified, “I did not get injured on this film. I got injured on another film, which was four days before we could start shooting for Sardar Udham. I had 13 stitches on my cheek. The first picture that I sent was to Shoojit da and he said, ‘Don’t worry, you come with the stitches, Sardar Udham Singh will have stitches’.”
He went on to add, “So, the scar that you see on my face as Sardar Udham Singh is a real scar. There are many different looks in the film. As you saw in the trailer, he kept changing his identity and his passports to reach London. I had to lose and gain weight several times for Sardar Udham Singh. I had to look 19 to 40 convincingly too.”
