After nailing the role of Ranbir Kapoor’s friend in Sanju, the actor gave his breakthrough performance with Uri: The Surgical Strike.

Along with the announcement, the first look of the actor was also revealed which received a mixed response from netizens.


The biopic is based on Sam Manekshaw, who was the first Indian Army officer to be promoted as Field Marshal. Some Twitter users pointed out the errors regarding the uniform which Vicky was donning, when compared with the original uniform of Sam Manekshaw and suggested the makers to consult some veterans to get it right.
