National Award-winning actor Vicky Kaushal visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar.

The actor was there before the second schedule of Sardar Udham Singh commenced in Punjab on Friday.

Vicky shared a picture on his official Instagram handle that shows him praying at the shrine. He also captioned the picture, “Babaji, mehrbakshyo. #SardarUdhamSingh here we go!”

He is seen dressed in a white kurta-pajama.

Helmed by Shoojit Sircar, Sardar Udham Singh revolves around the story of Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer, the former lieutenant governor of Punjab in pre-Independent India, to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar in 1919 British India.

Irrfan was earlier supposed to play the titular role in the film which then went to Vicky.

Vicky will also begin shooting for Karan Johar’s Takht in February 2020. “We will start shooting for Takht in February. The preparations are in full force at the moment. I will first finish the shooting of ‘Sardar Udham Singh’ and then move ahead with the shooting of Takht,” he told news agency IANS.

Takht will revolve around the rivalry between Mughal emperor Shahjahan’s sons, Aurangzeb and Dara Shikoh for the throne. Actors Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal will play Dara Shikoh and Aurangzeb, respectively.

Meanwhile, Sardar Udham Singh will be shot this year across many parts of the world.

A Rising Sun Film Production, the film is produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar and is slated to release in 2020.
