Vicky Kaushal has been roped in to play the part of freedom fighter Udham Singh in film-maker Shoojit Sircar‘s upcoming film.

The film is a biopic of the revolutionary Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer, the former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab in British India in 1940, to avenge the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

Vicky who had the ‘Piku’ director in his wish list of people to work with, since his acting career kicked off, while commenting on making it to the cast of the film said, “It’s a surreal feeling because it’s like a dream come true as I am finally getting to work with him. I have always been a big admirer of how Shoojit sir looks at his stories. The way he is looking at the character (Udham Singh) and the world is extraordinary as well as beautiful. Honestly, that’s something that will take time to sink in.”

Talking about casting Vicky in his film, the director said, “If you look at Vicky’s track record, he is taking brave steps and making some really fabulous choices. I wanted an actor who is ready to give his heart and soul to the film. Plus, he is a Punjabi boy and my film is a story of a Punjabi man. So, in many ways, he turned to be the obvious choice.”

The film goes on floors next month and will release next year.

After giving remarkable performance in ‘Sanju’ and ‘Raazi,’ Vicky Kaushal kick started 2019 with ‘high josh’, as his last film ‘URI’ created wonders at the box office. The Aditya Dhar directorial has managed to surpass all expectations and crossed Rs 150 crores at the box office.

He will be next seen in Karan Johar’s magnum opus ‘Takht’ alongside Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor.
