Vicky Kaushal starrer Sardar Udham Singh gets postponed, will release in January 2021
On March 13th, 1940 Sardar Udham Singh single-handedly assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer in London. On this day Vicky Kaushal on his Instagram handle posted the release date of the freedom fighter's biopic.
Sardar Udham, directed by Shoojit Sircar and featuring Vicky Kaushal in the lead role, will hit the theatres on January 15, 2021. The film was earlier scheduled to release on October 2 this year.
The new release date seems to have been chosen after it was announced earlier on Friday that Ranveer Singh’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar and John Abraham’s Satyamev Jayate will clash with the film of October 2.
The film is a biopic on Sardar Udham Singh, the revolutionary who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer, the former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab in British India in 1940, to avenge the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
Sharing the update on Instagram, Vicky wrote, “On March 13th 1940, #SardarUdham singlehandedly assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer in London to honour the lives lost at the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. His story deserves justice onscreen. Keeping that in mind, we will now see you in cinemas on 15th January 2021!”
