The picture showed his huge arms and frame, hinting that the bulking up phase for the role is going on well. Vicky wrote Chhava over the picture.

What is Chhava about?

While the film will be primarily focused on Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj’s sacrifice, and his strategies for the warfare, it will also explore a love angle between Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj and his wife, Yesubai Bhonsale (essayed by Rashmika). The film is being produced under the banner of Maddock Films, and will be their first historical project.

Meanwhile, Vicky will be seen opposite Triptii Dimri and Ammy Virk in the comedy entertainer Bad Newz. The film will hit the big screens on July 19.
