The upcoming biopic Soorma made on the star hockey player Sandeep Singh, has the actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh in the lead role.
Biopics have become the new ‘thing’ of Bollywood. We already have Sanju, the biopic on the actor Sanjay Dutt coming up. And the trailer of another biopic called Soorma was released recently which left us with goosebumps. The film has Diljit Dosanjh in the lead, who is playing the role of the star hockey player Sandeep Singh. And without any second thoughts we can say that nobody else could have done it better.
While many of us are not aware about the struggle that Sandeep had gone through in his life, the film has brought it out perfectly. Diljit, in his character, has nailed it showing the player’s comeback after he was paralyzed with an accidental gunshot right before the world cup.
Shaad Ali, the director, says, “Diljit was the obvious choice for the film because he looked the part. I was not trying to find too much resemblance. That was not my criteria, because I was just trying to go with the look, who would look honest in that part.”
The director has already given us films like Saathiya and Bunty Aur Bubli. And now Soorma can be the next big thing for him, as the trailer has been receiving much appreciation from all over.
Ali also says, “Biopics comes with an added responsibility because you are dealing with a real-life person. It’s not easy to make a biopic, but if you work with that persona and his or her family, things get easy.”
Soorma, along with Diljit Dosanjh also stars Angad Bedi and Tapsee Pannu in pivotal roles. The film slated for a release on July 13, this year.
