While he has been bagging some interesting films, Vicky Kaushal is all set for another intriguing film in which he will essay the role of Sam Manekshaw. Although fans were excited about the new look that the actor was sporting for the film, it seems that the look didn’t go down well with military and ex-military officials. In fact, they have pointed out major errors regarding ranks and batches in the look that was shared by the makers as well as Vicky on social media.
It seems that one of the netizens who came across the first look of Vicky Kaushal as Sam Manekshaw noticed some errors in the photo and also spoke about it on Twitter. He also asked producer Ronnie Screwvala to research on the subject before he takes the film further. The said tweet read, “Will request @adgpi / @atahasnain53 Sir and other Vererans who got a chance to serve under / serve with the great #SamSaheb to come forward and assist @vickykaushal09 / @RonnieScrewvala get our FieldMarshal persons right. WillB great if @RonnieScrewvala reaches out to them.”

Woukd love it if consulted. Lt Gen Deepinder Singh, his MA, is there to give everything on him. Vicky Kaushal, for starters is wearing wrong colour badges of rank. Sam was a Gurkha, never wore brass, always black badges. I am proud to wear that too being a Garhwali Bhulla. https://t.co/S4BG2lKHuW

After his tweet, many netizens took to Twitter asking the producers and even the actor Vicky Kaushal to learn more on Sam Manekshaw and the Indian military ranks before they decide to move ahead with the film:
@vickykaushal09 You should read this. And inform the producers. Bad research on their part to get basics wrong. Shudder to think what they will do with his story.

My friends veterans Lt Gen R Nanavatty and Brig Behram Panthaki were his ADCs.
They can be valuable resources. In fact Behram has published a book on Sam.

Sir I recommend that all inputs to the producers should be processed as valuable inputs and the ESM and Regimental fraternity should become a stakeholder and a trust in the name of the Great General be the beneficiary which can later use the proceeds to keep his legacy alive.
