Fatima Sana Shaikh has been in the limelight since she starred in Dangal, which also featured Aamir Khan, Sanya Malhotra and Aparshakti Khurana in key roles. Last year Fatima was seen in the Anurag Basu directorial Ludo and the Manoj Bajpayee and Diljit Dosanjh starrer Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari, while the actress was last seen in Netflix’s Ajeeb Daastaans.  The actress is now gearing up to star in Meghna Gulzar’s upcoming directorial film based on the life of Sam Manekshaw.

According to Pinkvilla, Meghna Gulzar and Ronnie Screwvala were to collaborate for a biopic on Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in 2017. However, it took the makers two years to reveal that Vicky Kaushal will star in the forthcoming movie. Meanwhile, earlier this year in April, the Masaan actor shared a motion poster of the film on Instagram and announced that the story of the braveheart will unfold on the screen, on the birth anniversary of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.

See the post here:

In 2019, Vicky unveiled his look from the film as Sam Manekshaw on Twitter. The Twitter post reads, “The swashbuckling general & the first Field Marshal of India- SAM MANEKSHAW. I feel honoured & proud of getting a chance to unfold his journey on-screen. Remembering him on his death anniversary & embracing the new beginnings with @meghnagulzar and @RonnieScrewvala.
@RSVPMovies (sic).”

Meanwhile, Vicky’s upcoming films include Sardar Udham Singh, The Great Indian Family and Mr Lele.
