Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal's recently released film 'Sardar Udham' held a special screening on Friday (October 15) which was attended by several B-town celebs including Irrfan Khan's wife Sutapa Sikdar and son Babil Khan. Everyone remembered Irrfan a lot during the film.
At the same time, Sutapa shared some memories related to Irrfan during an interview and told them that this role was Irrfan's dream role.
Sutapa said, "Seeing Vicky on the big screen also reminded her of Irrfan, who was almost like a child excited about the film for his role." Recalling his days at the National School of Drama (NSD), he pointed out that it was unfair to compare Vicky and Irrfan because of their age and experience in films, insisting that Vicky's face reflected the passion, dedication, hard work. And his love for cinema looks exactly like Irrfan's.
Shee further added that wherever Irrfan is, he should be happy to see Vicky as 'Sardar Udham Singh' as it was his dream role.
Vicky Kaushal's film is a biopic of Indian revolutionary Sardar Udham Singh, who killed former Lieutenant Governor of British India Michael O'Dwyer in Britain. Udham Singh did this to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. General O'Dwyer had ordered this shooting. The film is directed by Sujit Sarkar, while Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar are producing the film.
At the same time, Irrfan Khan was last seen in the film 'Angrezi Medium', which was released on March 13, 2020. However, due to the lockdown, this film could run in theaters only for two days, and then Irrfan died in Mumbai last year i.e. 2020.
