While sharing the photo on the death anniversary of Field Marshal Manekshaw, who led the India Army to pull off a spectacular victory against Pakistan in 1971, Meghna wrote, “A Soldier’s Soldier. A Gentleman’s Gentleman. In remembrance, on the death anniversary of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. It is my honour to tell the story of one of India’s greatest war heroes, with @vickykaushal09 essaying the historic man!”

Meghna sharing the first look of her film on Manekshaw came on a day social media was flooded with the outpour of messages remembering one of India’s iconic military heroes.

Vicky too shared the first look of his film with a message paying tribute to Manekshaw, “The swashbuckling general & the first Field Marshal of India- SAM MANEKSHAW. I feel honoured & proud of getting a chance to unfold his journey on-screen. Remembering him on his death anniversary & embracing the new beginnings with @meghnagulzar and @RonnieScrewvala.”

Meghna has already clarified that the film on Manekshaw was not a biopic. This is the third time that Vicky will be seen playing the character of an army man after Raazi and Uri.
