After Vicky Kaushal In ‘Sam Bahadur’, Will Meghna Gulzar Work With Sidharth Malhotra?
Mumbai: ‘Sam Bahadur’, based on the life of India’s first Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, is getting a lot of appreciation.
Meghna Gulzar’s recently-released film stars Vicky Kaushal in the title role.
The director, with highly-acclaimed films like ‘Talwar’, ‘Raazi’, ‘Chhapaak’ and now ‘Sam Bahadur’ under her belt, is in no mood to sit on her laurels.
The daughter of eminent lyricist and poet Gulzar and actress Raakhee is reportedly set to team up with Sidharth Malhotra for her next film.
The ‘Shershaah’ actor and Meghna have been in talks for a while now and have zeroed in on a subject. Like her last four movies, the yet-untitled film will also be based on a real-life story.
“Sid (Sidharth Malhotra) and Meghna Gulzar have been discussing a probable collaboration for a while now and they have finally zeroed in on a subject whose narrative will take the nation by shock. It’s set against the backdrop of a horrifying true story and the idea is to portray it with utmost sensitivity for the big screen. The film will go on floors by mid-2024,” Pinkvilla reported quoting a source.
“Meghna Gulzar had done all her research on this subject through the last few years and got the source material in place for the subject. She was deeply moved by all that happened and Sid resonated with her emotions on reading the script. Both stakeholders are looking forward to teaming up on this special project,” the source added.
Sidharth is gearing up for the release of Rohit Shetty’s web series ‘Indian Police Force’ followed by Karan Johar’s production ‘Yodha’. He is likely to start shooting for Dinesh Vijan’s next film in early 2024, followed by Meghna’s new project.
