Its Movie Time for Kiara Advani!! If reports are to be believed, Kabir Singh actress Kiara Advani will be seen paired opposite Vicky Kaushal in Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Manekshaw biopic. Kiara is said to be in talks with Meghna Gulzar for Sam Manekshaw’s biopic starring Vicky Kaushal in the lead. Seems like an amazing year for Kiara, as after back to back hits with Kabir Singh and a multi starrer Good News, Kiara’s hands are full with four upcoming films.
Talking about her four films, Kiara has been already roped in for Shershaah, Bhool Bhulaiya 2, Indoo Ki Jawani and Laxmi Bomb. As reported by Filmfare, Kiara is in talks for Sam Manekshaw biopic, directed by Meghna Gulzar, starring Vicky Kaushal and produced by Ronnie Screwvala. The film is based on Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, who was the Chief of the Indian Army during the Indo-Pak War 1971, who also happens to be the first Indian Army Officer to be promoted to the rank of field marshal.
Reports say that Kiara Advani is in talks with the makers of the project and if it works out well, the actress will be signing the film within a few months. Kiara and Vicky will be seen together on the silver screen for the first time. Previously, the actors have shared the screen space in a few commercials and a web series. The first look of Vicky Kaushal as Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw dropped on the internet, last June in 2019 and the actor looked quite impressing as the Army Officer.
As per director Meghna Gulzar, the film will not be a biopic entirely but it draws inspiration from Army Chief Sam Manekshaw and will comprise certain important chapters from his life. The actors will begin shooting for the film in 2021 to recreate the Partition, accession of Kashmir and the Indo Pak War on the celluloid.
