Speaking at India Today Conclave 2021, the filmmaker said, “I have not seen Uri. I want to thank Vicky for choosing to do Masaan, otherwise, he won’t be doing Sardar Udham. He has a little bit of Punjabi in him and I wanted that. I wanted somebody on my page. I needed somebody who can really understand the part. With Vicky, there was passion and focus.” Sharing his experience of shooting this project, he added, “I have no experience in creating an era. Most of the film is shot in London. It is funny that I had never visited London before this. So, everything was based on archaic footage, documentaries from the BBC films, national archive photos. I only remember Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi. So, in the Jallianwala Bagh scene, you will see a resemblance to Gandhi”.
