It is the fourth film of Punjabi singing sensation Diljit Dosanjh. he is playing Hockey in this movie as Sandeep Singh. This movie is a biopic based on the life of international hockey player Sandeep Singh, also stars Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi. Soorma’s trailer dropped today and the trio has seamlessly transformed into their respective characters. Directed by Shaad Ali, Soorma is set to release on July 13.
The trailer gives us a perfect glimpse at the life story of hockey player Sandeep Singh. It begins with a carefree Sandeep wanting to impress the love of his life, only to find his ultimate goal in the game of hockey. Just when he sets out to win a medal for India, an accident leaves him paralyzed. He not just loses out on playing the game, but even his love. As Sandeep gathers strength, the film traces his journey back to the hockey field.
Diljit along with Taapsee has put in a lot of hard work to get into the roles of hockey players, which is quite clear from the trailer. Angad Bedi plays Diljit’s onscreen brother and trainer.
Talking about playing the real-life hockey player, Diljit had previously said, There was a little embarrassment too, that being an Indian and a sports enthusiast, I didn’t know about the story, wasn’t aware of the person (Sandeep Singh). So there was a guilt that why we weren’t aware. It is just probably a way to rectify it, that let us be the medium to present his story. I hope now no one else says the same after the film.
