Earlier on Monday, taking to Instagram, Vicky wrote along with a new poster, “This is the story about the man, who dedicated his life to the Indian Army, to the nation. Trailer out tomorrow! Sam Bahadur in cinemas 1.12.2023.” In the poster, Vicky is seen wearing an Army uniform and walking near his soldiers, who are standing in a line.

The trailer builds on the teaser released last month and depicts Vicky Kaushal bring to life every inch of India's first Field Marshal. He's seen giving a tough talk to his fellow armymen, while holding his own against several high-profile leaders, including Indira Gandhi, the then-prime minister. The film is set in the late 1960s and early '70s.
