Bringing Sam Manekshaw's story to life:
Meghna Gulzar has directed the film and penned the screenplay along with Bhavani Iyer and Shantanu Srivastava.
Sam Bahadur has been in the works for nearly five years now. It was back in December 2021 when Vicky and Meghna announced the rest of the cast, including Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
The life of Sam Manekshaw, the first Indian Army officer to achieve the rank of field marshal and the Chief of Army Staff of the Indian Army during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, served as the inspiration for the movie.
Sam Bahadur is finally making its way to the big screen on December 1, 2023.
