Sutapa Sikdar says watching Vicky Kaushal as ‘Sardar Udham’ flooded her with memories of husband Irrfan Khan, reveals it was the late actor’s dream role | Hindi Movie News – Bollywood – Times of India

Actor Vicky Kaushal’s starrer film ‘Sardar Udham’ has been released on the OTT platform. The makers of the film recently held a special screening of it which was attended by many B-Town celebs. While the film is garnering praises from the viewers, late actor Irrfan Khan‘s wife Sutapa Sikdar, who also attended the special screening, has also reacted to the film and shared her thoughts of seeing Vicky bring the role to life. As a few of you must be knowing, before Vicky Kaushal, actor Irrfan was roped in to play the lead character but the late actor had to opt-out of the role owing to his health, Sutapa Sikdar said that she along with Irrfan’s son Babil got flooded with memories of the late actor during the film. While revealing that it was Irrfan’s dream role and admitting that he must be happy to see Vicky as Sardar Udham Singh, in her conversation with a news portal, she said, ‘When I looked at Vicky on screen, many pages of diaries flooded my memories. I remembered Irrfan’s excitement to do Sardar Udham and his childlike happiness whenever he had a tough role to do. Looking at Vicky, I remembered Irrfan in the National School of Drama (NSD). It is unfair to compare both of them at this stage because Irrfan was much older than Vicky in experience and age when he was to do the film. But, I saw glimpses of passion, dedication, hard work and love for cinema in Vicky’s face just like Irrfan. I am sure Irrfan is happy up there to see Vicky play Sardar Udham Singh. After all, it was Irrfan’s dream role!’
