Yes, I Got Injured But Not On Sardar Udham Sets Says Vicky Kaushal
News was viral that Vicky Kaushal suffered a massive injury while filming Shoojit Sircar’s Sardar Udham, but that is not true, but actor’s injury did add some texture to the revolutionary role.
While interacting with Newshelpline during the trailer launch of Sardar Udham, we asked Vicky about his injury. He said, “I did not get injured on this film. I got injured on another film, which was four days before we could start shooting for Sardar Udham. I had 13 stitches on my cheek. The first picture that I sent was to Shoojit da and he said, ‘Don’t worry, you come with the stitches, Sardar Udham Singh will have stitches”
“So, the scar that you see on my face as Sardar Udham Singh is a real scar. There are many different looks in the film. As you saw in the trailer, he kept changing his identity and his passports to reach London. I had to lose and gain weight several times for Sardar Udham Singh. I had to look 19 to 40 convincingly too”
The biographical drama about Udham Singh, a revolutionary freedom fighter best known for assassinating Michael O'Dwyer in London to take revenge for 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar, is helmed by Shoojit Sircar and produced by Rising Sun Films in collaboration with Kino Works.
The film will premiere in 16 October 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
