Vicky Kaushal on not winning the National Award for Sardar Udham
In an interview with India Today, Vicky Kaushal was asked if he felt disappointed about not winning the Best Actor honor for Sardar Udham at the National Awards. Vicky replied, saying, "Nahi! The thing is that many times when you get a film, and get to work with a director that you like, you think that's where your dream has come true, which is genuinely true for Sardar Udham. I am not just saying for the heck of it. Being a Punjabi, that topic, that man, that story is very, very close to my heart."
He went on to explain, "We have been listening to this story since our childhood days and always used to wonder why not many people know about this. So, for me, to eventually get the opportunity was a big deal and, after that, what I got or didn't get, everything was a bonus. For me, the story to reach the world, to get appreciated, to get resonated, that is everything. After that, for the film to get all the rewards are all bonuses. I don't have any qualms."
For the unversed, Sardar Udham is a film based on the life of freedom fighter Udham Singh, directed by Shoojit Sircar.
