Vicky Kaushal’s upcoming film based on the life of Sam Manekshaw has been christened ‘Sam Bahadur’.
The title reveal coincided with Manekshaw’s 107th birth anniversary. He was one of India’s greatest war heroes. His victory in the 1971 Indo-Pak war led to the creation of Bangladesh.
Director Meghna Gulzar said, “He was a soldier’s soldier and a gentleman’s gentleman. They don’t make men like Sam Bahadur anymore. I’m so honoured to be telling his story with Ronnie Screwvala and the incredibly talented Vicky Kaushal. On the Field Marshal’s birth anniversary, his story has got its name. I couldn’t be happier.”
The man. The legend. The brave heart.
