The team behind the upcoming historical film, starring Vicky Kaushal, Sanya Malhotra, and Fatima Sana Shaikh, just dropped the trailer for Sam Bahadur.
In a heartfelt message, they shared, “To our brave Indian army, to our country and its people, here’s a sneak peek into the incredible life of India’s top soldier, Sam Manekshaw.”
In the movie, Vicky plays the hero, Sam Manekshaw, while Fatima Sana Shaikh takes on the role of the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, and Sanya Malhotra becomes Silloo, Sam’s wife. Directed by Meghna Gulzar, this film promises to be a captivating journey.
Sam Bahadur trailer out
Before the big reveal, Vicky teased us on Instagram with a new poster of “Sam Bahadur,” saying, “This is the story of a man who dedicated his life to the Indian Army and our nation. Trailer drops tomorrow! Catch ‘Sam Bahadur’ in theaters on December 1, 2023.” The poster shows Vicky in military gear, walking among his fellow soldiers.
The 2-minute-40-second trailer gives us a fierce Vicky (as Sam Manekshaw), facing off against big names, including Indira Gandhi.
Ending with a powerful line, Vicky declares, “From now on, no officer or soldier will leave their post without my written order… and I won’t give that order.”
Mark your calendars for December 1, when the film hits theaters. Written by Bhavani Iyer, Shantanu Shrivastava, and Meghna Gulzar, and produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Movies, “Sam Bahadur” will go head-to-head with Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna’s “Animal.”
Fans flooded Vicky’s Instagram with love and fire emojis as soon as the trailer dropped.
I still remember meeting General Sam Manekshaw when he visited my dad’s station. Even as a kid post the 1971 war, he was THE Sam Bahadur. The excitement before his arrival was real, and despite his small stature, he seemed larger than life. As a little kid, he made me smile with his charming words and handshake. Those memories came rushing back as I saw you in the trailer, not just imitating his style but truly becoming him. Can’t wait to see the film about this extraordinary gentleman and officer.
