The film features Vicky Kaushal in the pivotal role and it is based on the life of Udham Singh who murdered Michael O’Dwyer, the man who orchestrated the horrific Jallianwala Bagh massacre. The Director of the film is Shoojit Sircar. It will be streaming on Amazon Prime Video from 16 th of October from this month. Irfan Khan was selected to play the role of Udham singh but due to his sudden death the film was handed to Vicky Kaushal. There was a good relationship between Irrfan and Shoojit Sircar.
After the sudden demise of Irrfan Khan everybody was shocked. Bollywood Industry lost a gem.Sutapa his wife and Son Babil were seen at the screening of Sardar Udham in Mumbai. Sutapa shared her thoughts on it and as well reacted to it saying “I don’t know how to put this, but objectively, I couldn’t see the film as just a film. Sardar Udham is not just a film. For me, it’s a dream Irrfan wanted to live. So it is very difficult for me to comment on it as a film.”
She continued revealing about Vicky Kaushal's role as to how he played she said “When I looked at Vicky on screen, many pages of diaries flooded my memories. I remembered Irrfan’s excitement to do Sardar Udham and his childlike happiness whenever he had a tough role to do. Looking at Vicky, I remembered Irrfan in National School of Drama (NSD). It is unfair to compare both of them at this stage, because Irrfan was much older to Vicky in experience and age when he was to do the film. But, I saw glimpses of passion, dedication, hard work and love for cinema in Vicky’s face just like Irrfan. I am sure Irrfan is happy up there to see Vicky play Sardar Udham Singh. After all, it was Irrfan’s dream role!”
