After announcing his upcoming horror film ‘Bhoot’, Vicky Kaushal announced the release date for the biopic on Sardar Udham Singh in his Instagram stories. Check it out –
The biopic will hit theatres on October 2, 2020. It is based on the life of Udham Singh – the man who was responsible for Michael O’Dwyer’s assassination. Michael was the Governor of Punjab under whose aegis the horrific Jallianwala Bagh massacre was carried out. This is not the first film being made on Udham Singh – his life has earlier been translated into a Punjabi film named Shaheed Udham Singh that released in 1999.
