Vicky Kaushal has commenced the shooting of his upcoming movie, based on the life of freedom fighter Sardar Udham Singh. He will be shooting in Amritsar for 25 days.
Vicky shared a picture on Instagram, announcing the start of shoot for the Amritsar schedule of his upcoming film. In the picture he is seen seeking blessings at the Golden Temple. The actor wrote, "Babaji, mehr bakshyo. #SardarUdhamSingh here we go!"
Vicky Kaushal has undergone a major transformation for the preparation of the role. The actor, who will also be seen playing the part of young Udham Singh, has lost over 13 kg for the role. Talking about the preparation for the film, a source close to the actor said, "Vicky has lost about 13kgs in just three months for Udham Singh. He has lost all the weight to play the younger portions of Singh. It wasn’t an easy task, but he was clear about shedding the weight, in order to look convincing as a 20-something boy,”
Directed by Shoojit Sircar, the shooting for the biopic began in April this year. The film will also be shot in Russia, London, Ireland, and Germany. It is scheduled to release on October 2 next year.
Just after finishing the shoot of Sardar Udham Singh, Vicky Kaushal will begin shooting for Takht.
