Vicky Kaushal is on a roll. The actor, who is playing the revolutionary, Sardar Udham Singh, in his upcoming film, has been treating fans to unseen pictures of himself as the character. Most recently, Vicky Kaushal has shared a photo of himself from the sets of Sardar Udham in a never-seen-before avatar. Here, he is seen trudging through the forests of Eastern Europe. Covered in a fur coat and a cap, the cold is evident from the snowflakes gathered on his face and beard. Sharing the image, Vicky Kausal wrote, “1933, somewhere in the forests of eastern Europe.” One of the first comments came from Bhumi Padnekar, Vicky Kaushal’s co-star in the film Bhoot: The Haunted Ship. The actress wrote, “Wow”. Actor Ranveer Singh said, “Hard…Hard…Hard”. Fans of the actor also dropped a bunch of clap and heart emojis below the photo.
