“Sam Bahadur” was released on Friday, and the film has received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. Sam Manekshaw, India's first field marshal, is played by Vicky Kaushal in the film.

Apart from Vicky Kaushal's industry colleagues, the film touched Sam Manekshaw's daughter Maja Daruwala to tears, reports NDTV.

Maja Daruwala attended The Indian Express' Adda with director Meghna Gulzar and Vicky Kaushal. At the ceremony, she said, "They have made the film to make the country proud of whatever it was. But, the time that I tear up, every time, I've seen the film twice now and I teared up both times, is the last two seconds of the film when you turn to the audience and you're smiling. That just kills me every time."

Vicky Kaushal has garnered widespread acclaim from friends, colleagues, and his family. Among the accolades, a heartfelt note arrived from actor Abhishek Bachchan. Bachchan posted on X, “Saw #SamBahadur last night. The enormity of all that #FieldMarshalSamManekshaw did and achieved is overwhelming! And so beautifully told on celluloid by my favourite @meghnagulzar. It's a huge responsibility to portray one of India's greatest sons and she does it wonderfully. To...the entire cast and crew, you should be very proud and thank you for telling this story. @vickykaushal09, what do I even say about you... you continue to set the bar so high for all of us and then so effortlessly jump over it as only Sam can.”

Vicky's performance was also lauded by wife and Bollywood star Katrina Kaif. In an Instagram post, she said, “Maghna Gulzar, such a poetic beautiful classic film, was transported to another era .. can see your passion to telling his story and attention to detail in every shot.”

"And SAM !!!!.....GRACE, HEROISM, GRIT. What a performance, flawless, I'm just astounded, you are too inspiring, true to your craft in the most brilliant integral way, was so proud to watch you shine your way across the screen. I've seen you this last year pour yourself into this film and transform into sam. A performance to be remembered,” she added.
