Vicky Kaushal and Vikas Shukla, well known for the films Sacred Games and Raazi and currently starring in Jubilee, will once again work together on Sam Bahadur.
Vikas Shukla, an actor best known for his roles in “Sacred Games,” “Bard of Blood,” “Hush Hush,” “Raazi,” “Omerta,” and many more films, will appear in Meghna Gulzar’s “Sam Bahadur,” a biopic based on the life of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. He is now starring in the film “Jubilee.”
After “Raazi,” the actor will be seen working with Vicky Kaushal and Meghna Gulzar once more.
Talking about how he landed into the role, Vikas Shukla said: “I played a small role in the film ‘Raazi’ of a RAW agent. Meghna ma’am remembered me from there and 5 years later, she called me to test for this role. I think no work goes wasted and it helps you to fetch another work. So she tested me for the elder brotherof Sam Manekshaw, Fali and that’s how I landed the role.”
Describing his experience reuniting with Meghna, Vikas Shukla shared: “She is absolutely an amazing human and a passionate filmmaker as all we know. Her body of work is just beyond the word. She is very specific about the characters’ looks and their appearance. Sam Bahadur is period drama based on Sam Manekshaw, so you can understand what kind of research and preparation it required. I was called multiple times for the look test even though I had a small portion there. So you can imagine.”
Sharing his experience reuniting with Vicky, he said: “Me and Vicky already worked in ‘Raazi’, but we didn’t get acquainted during that time. But in ‘Sam Bahadur’ we had scenes together. He is a fantastic actor and very down to earth. I’m looking forward to working with him on upcoming projects. Hopefully!”
Before concluding, Vikas Shukla discussed his other upcoming projects: “I will also be seen in the film ‘Baramulla,’ produced by Aditya Dhar and Jio Studios, playing a cop in the film opposite Manav Kaul, Bhasa Sumbli, Shahid Latif, and Mir Sarwar. Additionally, ‘Incomplete Man’ starring Sharib Hashmi is a movie that will be released in a few months. I portrayed a gay character in the movie. It was both interesting and challenging.
