Vicky, who has been receiving accolades for his performances in his last few offering like Raazi and Sanju among others, is gearing up for Shootjit Sircar helmed Sardar Udham Singh. Earlier, while announcing the film, the makers had unveiled the first look of Vicky Kaushal as Sardar Udham Singh. The film is based on the life of freedom fighter Udham Singh. Now the makers have found Vicky’s leading lady and they have got Banita Sandhu on board. Yes, that’s right!

For those who’ve come in late, Udham Singh assassinated Michael O’Dwyer, former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab of British India to avenge the horrors of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. This biopic on his life will see Vicky Kaushal play the titular role.

Wearing white T-Shirt paired with blue denim and cargo pants, his weight loss was quite visible in the pictures.
