Vicky Kaushal’s film Sam Bahadur is based on the life of India’s first Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.
“There is a powerful virtuous cycle that is created when a country produces films that tell the stories of its heroes. Especially about soldiers and stories of leadership and courage. People’s pride and confidence are multiplied. More heroes emerge when people know their bravery will be feted. Hollywood has created this virtuous cycle for a century. So thank you @RonnieScrewvala for making such films for us. Especially about this ‘gazab ka banda, sab ka banda’ as the song says.” wrote Mahindra on X.
