Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar spoke to The Quint about his newly released and critically acclaimed biopic on Udham Singh, Sardar Udham. Sircar reveals that he had actually planned to make a film on Bhagat Singh, but then zeroed in on the more unsung Udham Singh. Apart from other things Sircar also spoke about his decision to give a longish screen time to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre sequence and what was his most indelible impression of Udham from all the research work and readings he
had done.
