Written by Ritesh Shah and Shubendu Bhattacharya... Produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar... 2020 release.”

The movie will see Vicky Kaushal in the titular role of Sardar Udham Singh and is written by Ritesh Shah and Shubendu Bhattacharya. It has been produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar.

It will be based on the life of the freedom fighter Ram Mohammad Singh Azad, who is better known as Shaheed-i-Azam Sardar Udham Singh. He belonged to Ghadar Party and assassinated Michael O-Dwyer, the former lieutenant governor of Punjab in British India, on March 13, 1940.
