About 'Sam Bahadur'

'Sam Bahadur' is based on the life and journey of Sam Manekshaw MC. Manekshaw, fondly named 'Sam Bahadur,' led the Indian Army to a win in the 1971 Indo-Pak War, which resulted in the liberation of Bangladesh. He was the first Indian Army officer who got promoted to the rank of a Field Marshal, that too just 15 days before his retirement.

On playing this role in the film, Vicky said, "Playing the role of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw is an immense responsibility and a huge honour. We've poured our hearts into bringing to life one of India's great heroes on screen. I'm humbled to be a part of this project that is so inspiring."
