Shoojit Sircar's film, Sardar Udham, starring Vicky Kaushal, will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in October.
Sardar Udham tells the story of the titular revolutionary, who assassinated Michael O' Dwyer in London in 1940. The assassination was done in revenge for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar in 1919.
