Sharing the teaser of the film on her Instagram Stories, she wrote, “I still remember the day Meghna Gulzar told us the story of Sam on the sets of Raazi… Vicky sat there… a twinkle in his eye… hoping to one day be Sam. And wow… just wow Vicky Kaushal! Can’t wait to see this one (heart hands emoji). Special mention to my favourite DoP Jay I Patel.”
Sam Bahadur: Vicky Kaushal shares new poster ahead of teaser launch
One should note that Vicky’s Sam Bahadur is clashing with Alia’s husband Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal on December 1. The film will see Ranbir in a never seen before avatar, where he teams up with Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandana under Sandeep Vanga Reddy’s direction.
Talking about the clash at a press conference Vicky said, “I think that Friday, we are eventually gonna hand over our films to the audience. It will be the audiences’ day more than our day. Like Ronnie pointed out, in today’s time, we, as an industry, should give the option of multiple films on the same day to the audience. That’s how we will flourish as an industry. We have those many weeks in a year, but as an industry, we cannot limit ourselves to making those many films in a year. We will have to make multiple films and we will have multiple releases on the same day. We have to build an atmosphere where multiple films can work on the same day. We have the strength in the audience, we have the strength at the exhibitor level, so, why not? I think we kind of also need to push the envelope now. Given today’s scenario, the excitement that the audiences have, I think, if they resonate with two films and both the films are good, both can work. So, I am as excited for Animal as anybody else. As long as it is great for the audience. We work for them.”
