Katrina Kaif had joined Vicky Kaushal on Friday, for the screening of his latest release ‘Sardar Udham’. The couple is rumoured to be dating but has refused to confirm their romance. Post watching the movie, Katrina showered Vicky with love with his ‘raw and honest’ performance in the Shoojit Sircar directorial.
Urging everyone to watch the OTT release right away, Katrina wrote, “Shoojit Sircar, what a vision, such a gripping beautiful film, pure unadultrated storytelling. Vicky Kaushal is just pure talent, raw, honest, heartbreaking.” While Vicky Kaushal has remained tightlipped about his personal life, his brother Sunny recently opened up about Katrina Kaif and had told ETimes, “I’ve met her. When ‘The Forgotten Army’ was released, she was there as she’s a very good friend of Kabir Khan. So, I’ve met her a couple of times and she’s very sweet.”
Apart from Katrina, Irrfan Khan’s wife Sutapa had watched Vicky’s performance in ‘Sardar Udham’ and revealed that it brought back memories of her husband Irrfan Khan, who was supposed to sign the movie. She told a news portal that ‘Sardar Udham’ was Irrfan Khan’s dream role. Irrfan Khan had reportedly opted out of the movie due to health reasons. Speaking about stepping in for Irrfan Khan, Vicky had told BT in an interview, “Ever since I stepped into the industry, I have been hungry to collaborate with Shoojit sir. When I got this opportunity, I grabbed it with both hands. Irrfan sir was in a league of his own. It’s not possible for me or any other actor to fill his shoes. He was one of the greatest actors in the world. Look at the quality of his work. I love him as an actor and deeply admire him. We lost him way too soon. I felt like his spirit and blessings were around us. For me, the attempt was never to fill his shoes because I knew I could never achieve that. The aim was to act to the best of my ability and surrender completely to Shoojit sir’s version of Sardar Udham.” Source
