VICKY KAUSHAL TALKS ABOUT HIS IDEA OF DIVERSITY
Vicky Kaushal said: “The tone that is set in Uri: The Surgical Strike and Sardar Udham, I completely surrender myself to it. It is my duty. My idea of patriotism is very simple. I grew up reading the promise in school. This is how my day started. It was about celebrating diversity, secularism and fraternity. One of the things I’m most proud of being an Indian is that every 100 km the culture, the language and the food change.

Speaking at India Today Conclave 2021, Vicky Kaushal also spoke about the Sardar Udham scene which touched him deeply. The actor plays Sardar Udham Singh who avenged the Jallianwala Bagh massacre by killing Michael O’Dwyer, the former lieutenant governor of Punjab, in 1940. Vicky revealed that the filming of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre scene was a numbing experience.
“The part where we were trying to recreate the Jallianwala Bagh massacre was a numbing experience for me. As an actor, I knew what I was getting myself into, but I still wasn’t prepared for it. The way Shoojit films this scene is so realistic that you are thrown into this world. After I finished this shoot, there were times I didn’t sleep because I kept wondering about this incident. If it was so numbing to me, what would have been the impact on the people who witnessed it. The thought made me shiver.
