Vicky Kaushal is gearing up for his film Sam Bahadur. On Tuesday, the cast and makers released the eagerly-awaited film’s trailer. The period film stars Vicky as Sam Manekshaw, the charismatic war hero, and Fatima Sana Shaikh as late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Sam Bahadur also features Sanya Malhotra as Silloo, Sam’s wife
Taking to Instagram, Vicky Kaushal released the trailer video.
Vicky, who last collaborated with filmmaker Meghna Gulzar on the spy thriller Raazi, transforms into Sam Manekshaw, complete with his distinctive handlebar mustache, in the film.
Earlier on Monday, taking to Instagram, Vicky wrote along with a new poster, “This is the story about the man, who dedicated his life to the Indian Army, to the nation. The trailer is out tomorrow! Sam Bahadur in cinemas 1.12.2023.” In the poster, Vicky is seen wearing an Army uniform and walking near his soldiers, who are standing in a line.
The trailer builds on the teaser released last month and depicts Vicky Kaushal bringing to life every inch of India’s first Field Marshal. He’s seen giving a tough talk to his fellow armymen, while holding his own against several high-profile leaders, including Indira Gandhi, the then-prime minister. The film is set in the late 1960s and early ’70s.
