Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar is counted amongst the finest filmmakers of the country. Be it Piku, Vicky Donor, or October, every film made by him speaks of his genius. His upcoming movie, Sardar Udham is unlike his earlier works. It's not a slice of life film, but a serious commentary on a revolutionary's life. He says the subject lived with him but back then he didn’t have the guts or the resources to do justice to it.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Shoojit Sircar also spoke about working with Vicky Kaushal in the movie. “For me the working relationship and connect with someone while starting the shoot is important. I like to partner with like minded, warm and humble people and Vicky is all that and more. His growth in cinema made a difference and connected us. We developed a trust and he got how the film has to be internal, about Udham’s mind, which we have been able to achieve,” he said.
He added the London shoot and scenes between Udham and Bhagat Singh were beautiful and he cherishes them.
Shoojit Sircar further assured that Sardar Udham will give the audience a different perspective on the freedom fighters. “The film has a different perspective to freedom fighters as we know, they are not put on a pedestal or bookish. That’s the effort and I have tried. I have seen some films on revolutionaries and freedom fighters and I felt justice was not done to those. And if I believe so, the challenge for me was to make Sardar Udham more impactful, otherwise what’s the point of making a film. When you make a film, you should have some perspective."

"I make films with my integrity and there are many like minded people who connect with my films. What I think about while making a film is that I shouldn’t go wrong and do justice to the subject, in this case to Sardar Udham, what he was and what he was meant to be. That is most important," he concluded. ALSO READ: Sardar Udham: Vicky Kaushal Looks Intense In His Rugged Avatar As The Revolutionary Sardar Udham Singh- See PHOTO
