'Sam Bahadur' locked horns with Ranbir Kapoor's 'Animal' which is inching closer to the Rs 300 crore mark in India despite polarising reactions.
The film is based on the life of Field Marshal, Sam Manekshaw who was fondly called Sam Bahadur. He led the Indian Army and got victory in the 1971 Indo-Pak war. Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra play pivotal roles in the film.
On Tuesday, a romantic track 'Itni Si Baat' from Sam Bahadur was released. It features Vicky Kaushal and Sanya Malhotra. The soulful number is crooned by Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam and lyrics are penned by Gulzar.
Sharing the song on his Instagram handle, Vicky wrote, “Thoda paagl, thoda bebaak, lekin sccaa hai Sam aur Silloo ka pyaar! Kuch aise huyi inki kahaani ki shuruat (Sam and Siloo's love is slightly crazy and slightly fearless. This is how their love story started)!”
