Vicky Kaushal is back with a bang with a totally brand new look. This look is for another biopic that he is roped in, which is based on the life of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. The new look is out, and Vicky looks completely unrecognizable as Sam. Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the film could not really get an apt protagonist other than Vicky as he perfectly fits the bill.

In the new still, he is seen in a stiff uniform with a slight smile on his face. It is his moustache and the light-eyes look that sets him apart from all the looks that he donned till date. You can compare him with the original picture given and you'll know why the film is already ready to create buzz. Check out the picture below:

I feel honoured, emotional and proud of getting a chance to unfold the journey of this fearless patriot, the swashbuckling general, the first Field Marshal of India- SAM MANEKSHAW. Remembering him on his death anniversary today and embracing the new beginnings with @meghnagulzar and #RonnieScrewvala. @rsvpmovies
Meghna, who previously worked with him in Raazi, revealed to Mumbai Mirror, "We wanted to finish the edit on the draft first before reaching out to an actor. One day, I just called up Vicky, who happened to be nearby, and invited him over for a cold coffee. We had a conversation about Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. He was about to fly to the US and said that he doesn’t want to read the script and would just do the film. But I insisted that he read it and call me."
Adding about when the films will go on the floors, she told, "We will start shooting in 2021, which is good for all of us because it needs that much prep time as we have the Partition, accession of Kashmir, and the 1971 Indo-Pak war to cover in the narrative." Right now, Vicky is shooting another biopic based on Udham Singh, directed by Shoojit Sircar. On the other hand, Meghna just wrapped up Deepika Padukone - Vikrant Massey starrer Chhapaak.
