Sam Bahadur is a biopic based on the life of India’s first Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. He was also the Indian Army Chief during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. Vicky Kaushal had announced the movie in 2019.

Later, filmmaker Meghna Gulzar announced the title of the film in April last year i.e on the occasion of Sam’s birth anniversary. Apart from Vicky Kaushal, the film also also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra.
