Diljit Dosanjh to star in hockey player Sandeep Singh’s biopic

Biopic seems to be the in- thing in tinsel town now.

And so, after Sanju, it’s time for hockey player Sandeep Singh’s life story to come to the fore through Soorma.

Featuring Diljit Dosanjh as the lead and costarring Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi in pivotal roles, the film had its trailer launch on Monday.

Diljit in just his fourth Hindi film seems to impress with his balanced portrayal of the sports personality.

Singh’s professional career sees depiction in the film’s storyline and the engaging trailer definitely has set the tone for the movie, which is slated to release on July 13.

A passionate retelling of the life and career of the former Indian hockey great, Soorma also deals with the love and romance in Singh’s life, with Taapsee and Diljit making up a fresh pair.

Taapsee seems to hog the limelight in the trailer of the story about this hero who brought India gold at the 2009 Sultan Azlan Shah Cup tournament.

Produced by Sony Pictures Network, Chitrangada Singh and Deepak Singh, Soorma is set to be an intriguing story about a man who has offered much, but should be talked about more.
