Vicky Kaushal and Meghna Gulzar are coming together again after 'Raazi'.

Vicky Kaushal is the next big thing of B-Town. After garnering critical acclaim for his films Masaan and Raman Raghav 2.0, noticeable performance in Sanju and humongous success of Uri-The Surgical Strike placed him A-list category.

Now, the 31-year-old actor has bagged a film on the life of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.

Remembering him on his death anniversary today and embracing the new beginnings with @meghnagulzar and #RonnieScrewvala".

Meghna Gulzar, who has wrapped up the shooting of Chhapaak with Deepika Padukone, told Mumbai Mirror that it was during the shooting of Raazi that she shared the story of Sam Manekshaw with Vicky Kaushal.

"We wanted to finish the edit on the draft first before reaching out to an actor. One day, I just called up Vicky, who happened to be nearby and invited him over for a cold coffee. We had a conversation about Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. He was about to fly to the US and said that he doesn't want to read the script and would just do the film. But I insisted that he read it and call me," she told the daily.

Meghna also revealed that her film isn't a biopic. "And he remembers them. Ours is not a biopic, because it does not chronologically just record Sam Manekshaw's life. We need to make an interesting narrative when telling a story by picking out the most crucial, iconic and relevant incidents of his life, giving a view of the soldier, the man, and the Field Marshal," added the filmmaker.

Vicky Kaushal, who has stepped into the shoes of Sam Manekshaw for the film, said, "I personally couldn't witness his achievements, but my parents would always tell me that he was a fearless patriot with an amazing leadership quality. The first time I'd heard of him was in the context of the 1971 Indo-Pak war."

The film is set to go on the floors next year.
