The biopic, titled Udham Singh, is based on the life of Punjab’s Ghadar Party revolutionary, who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer, the former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab in British India in 1940, to avenge the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre. He was a prominent figure in the Indian freedom movement.
Currently, Vicky Kaushal is completing an untitled horror comedy. Post that, he will kick-start the Udham Singh biopic, mostly by mid-April and the movie will hit the screens in 2020.
