Couple years ago, Vicky Kaushal's first look from the the film was revealed and he looked the splitting image of the great Sam Manekshaw. Here's what director Meghna had to say about the film, "He was a soldier’s soldier and a gentleman’s gentleman. They don’t make men like Sam Bahadur anymore. On the Field Marshal’s birth anniversary, his story has got its name. I couldn’t be happier."

“I had always heard stories about Sam Bahadur from my parents, who hail from Punjab and have seen the 1971 war, but when I read the script I was completely blown away,” Vicky Kaushal said.
