Vicky Kaushal’s upcoming biopic on Sam Manekshaw has been titled Sam Bahadur. The title was revealed by producer Ronnie Screwvala and director Meghna Gulzar on Manekshaw’s 107th birth anniversary. 

Known as one of India’s greatest war heroes, Sam Manekshaw’s military career spanned four decades and five wars. He was the first Indian Army officer to be promoted to the rank of Field Marshal. His victory in the 1971 Indo-Pak war led to the creation of Bangladesh.

Speaking about the veteran, Meghna shared, “He was a soldier's soldier and a gentleman's gentleman. They don't make men like Sam Bahadur anymore. I'm so honoured to be telling his story with Ronnie Screwvala and the incredibly talented Vicky Kaushal. On the Field Marshal’s birth anniversary, his story has got its name. I couldn’t be happier.”

Vicky reveals he had heard stories of Sam Bahadur from his parents, who hail from Punjab and have seen the 1971 war. However, he was ‘completely blown away’ when he read the script. “He is a hero and patriot who is still remembered and loved to this day and capturing his spirit in the film is of the highest importance to me,” Vicky said.
