The official handle of Rising Sun Films took to Twitter to announce that Vicky Kaushal’s upcoming film Sardar Udham Singh will now release on January 15 next year.
The release date of Vicky Kaushal’s biographical drama Sardar Udham Singh has been shifted to January 15, 2021, the producers of the film announced on Friday. The Shoojit Sircar film, which is being produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, was earlier slated to hit the big screens on October 2, 2020.
The production company of the film – Rising Sun Films – made an official announcement on Twitter.
“On March 13th 1940, #SardarUdham singlehandedly assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer in London to honour the lives lost at the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. His story deserves justice onscreen too. Starring Vicky Kaushal, we will now see you in cinemas on 15th January 2021!” tweeted Rising Sun Film Production.
Sardar Udham Singh is the cinematic portrayal of the life of freedom fighter of the same name. Sardar Udham Singh is known for assassinating former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab, Michael O’ Dwyer in 1940.
The assassination was intended to avenge the brutal Jallianwala Bagh massacre, which took place in Amritsar on April 13, 1919. Vicky Kaushal, who was last in Karan Johar’s horror drama Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship, will be seen as Sardar Udham Singh in Shoojit Sircar film.
