Sam Bahadur has two cast members – Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra to take on challenging roles in RSVP and Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur. The announcement of their inclusion in his cast Sam Bahadur based on the life and era of the brave Sam Manekshaw, one of India’s greatest war heroes, also coincides with the birthday of director Meghna Gulzar.
Manekshaw’s military career spanned four decades and five wars.

And it is very exciting to have Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh to join his team Sam Bahadur. “Both of their roles in the film require great sensitivity, dignity and composure, and I look forward to the ladies bringing these characters to life.”

I am also extremely grateful to Meghna Gulzar and really look forward to this exciting journey with her. ”
