First Look Out! Vicky Kaushal Collaborates With Meghna Gulzar Once Again And Our 'Josh' Is Very High
Actor Vicky Kaushal never ceases to impress us. After giving spectacular performances in films like Raazi, Sanju and Uri: The Surgical Strike, he has undoubtedly become the new blue-eyed boy of Bollywood. A couple of days back, we saw him in the poster of Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship and just when we thought it is going to be his best work, he surprised us once again. Yes, the handsome hunk is reuniting with filmmaker Meghna Gulzar for a film on the life of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.
According to a leading daily, Megha shared the story of Sam Manekshaw with Vicky while shooting for Raazi. Mumbai Mirror quoted her as saying, "We wanted to finish the edit on the draft first before reaching out to an actor. One day, I just called up Vicky, who happened to be nearby and invited him over for a cold coffee. We had a conversation about Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. He was about to fly to the US and said that he doesn't want to read the script and would just do the film. But I insisted that he read it and call me."
Meghna also revealed that the movie is not a biopic. She further said, "Ours is not a biopic, because it does not chronologically just record Sam Manekshaw's life. We need to make an interesting narrative when telling a story by picking out the most crucial, iconic and relevant incidents of his life, giving a view of the soldier, the man, and the Field Marsha."
Vicky, who has some interesting projects in his kitty, is very excited to be the part of this film. Sharing his views, he said, "I personally couldn’t witness his achievements, but my parents would always tell me that he was a fearless patriot with amazing leadership quality. The first time I’d heard of him in the context of the 1971 Indo-Pak war."
It is being said that the actor will meet people who have known Manekshaw closely along with watching his videos in order to look convincing on the screen.
The shooting will start next year. The film is written by Bhavani Iyer and bankrolled by Ronnie Screwvala.
Well, we are sure that a blockbuster is in the making.
Meanwhile, Vicky is busy with the work of Shoojit Sircar's Udham Singh biopic. He will also be seen in Karan Johar's Takht.
