Vicky Kaushal, Sanya Malhotra, and Fatima Sana Shaikh are all set to shine on screen from December 1 with their film Sam Bahadur. The film has been directed by Meghna Gulzar with Vicky playing the titular role. Sam Bahadur is based on the life of India's first Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. His career in the army spanned over four decades and five wars. He was the first Indian Army officer to be promoted to the rank of Field Marshal and he led the victory in the 1971 Indo-Pak war, which led to the creation of Bangladesh.
