An absolute honour to be roped in to play Shaheed Udham Singh, in his biopic to be directed by @shoojitsircar sir… the man who was sitting right at the top of my wish list of Directors to work with. Can’t wait for this journey to start next month. Produced by Ronnie Lahiri. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ 🙏
Udham Singh was responsible for the assassination of the mastermind behind the Jallianwala Bagh massacre – Michael O’Dwyer – former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab under British India.
The actor took to Instagram to share a click with the director, with the caption “Udham Singh”.
“I have always been a big admirer of how Shoojit sir looks at his stories. The way he is looking at the character (Udham Singh) and the world is extraordinary as well as beautiful. Plus, it’s also a big honour for me that finally, I am going to be directed by him. Honestly, that’s something that will take time to sink in,” said Vicky Kaushal.
