On April 30, the first look of actor Vicky Kaushal from the film 'Sardar Udham Singh', a biopic on the legendary freedom fighter was released by the makers on social media.
Vicky Kaushal took to his Twitter handle and wrote: "Running my fingers thru the bullet holes at Jallianwala Baug, little did I know that 1 day I'd get a chance to bring alive the lesser known martyr, UDHAM SINGH. #SardarUdhamSingh @ShoojitSircar @ronnielahiri #SheelKumar @writish #ShubenduBhattacharya @filmsrisingsun @sardarudham" [sic]
Taking a hilarious dig, 'Badla' actress Taapsee Pannu who shares a close bond with the makers Ronnie Lahiri (the film producer) and Shoojit Sircar (director), wrote on her Twitter handle: "I kept telling @ShoojitSircar and @ronnielahiri I can be quite good at playing Udham Singh! But now that they have found @vickykaushal09 I think he will do a decent job 😜
For all the favourites in one team I’m gonna wait for this 🤗" [sic]
Ronnie Lahiri who also produced Taapsee's hit film 'Pink' immediately commented: "He’s trying to match up to your standards 😜", to which Taapsee concluded by saying: "Tell him to keep trying ! He will reach somewhere close by 😆"
Director Shoojit Sircar also replied to Taapsee Pannu's comment saying: "🙏 looking forward to shooter dadi’s:))" [sic]
Her comment left many fans laughing out loud. Here's the post -
