Vicky Kaushal has a packed film schedule, forcing him to be extremely selective in the projects he selects. Recently, Kaushal had to make a tough choice between two biopics.
“Vicky was offered biopics of both Rakesh Sharma and Udham Singh. His schedule didn’t have the bandwidth for two biopics. He finally chose to do Udham Singh and not only because he found the character so fiercely patriotic but also because Vicky really wants to work with Shoojit Sircar.”, a source told Deccan Chronicle.
Shoojit Sircar is happy to have Kaushal on board as well, “I’ve been waiting to tell the heroic tale of shaheed Udham Singh for a long time. It is a story close to my heart. I needed an actor who could give his heart and soul to the film. Vicky fits the bill perfectly. I have seen his work and the dedication he brings to it.”, he shared, adding that the project is still in the early stages, “This is just the beginning of our journey of discovery. It’s a huge responsibility. I will try my best. We have a long way to go before the film is out there.”
