Diljit Dosanjh soon will be seen in the biopic of hockey player Sandeep Singh. Diljit shared his experience with the movie while interacting with the media. The movie is titled ‘Soorma’. Along with Diljit Tapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi is also a part of the film. Diljit said that when the makers came to him for the movie without reading the script I said no to the film because already so many films are made on sports and this one will also be same. But after reading the script I thought how stupid I am to have said no to such an epic story. I immediately said yes to the movie after reading the script.
Soorma is a biopic on the life of Indian hockey player Sandeep Singh. Singh has led quite the life. From suffering a bullet wound to making a stunning comeback, his story is awe-inspiring. The Indian hockey team won the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in 2009, thanks to Singh’s immense contribution. He also has the best drag-flick (speed 145 km/h) in the world.
Soorma is directed by Shaad Ali, who has previously helmed movies such as Saathiya, Bunty Aur Babli and Ok Jaanu. This will be Ali’s sixth outing as a director of a feature film. Ali had earlier assisted Mani Ratnam on Dil Se, Guru and Raavan.
The music of the movie has been composed by the popular trio of Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy. The lyrics of the songs have been penned by none other than veteran lyricist Gulzar. There are also reports that a song from the film’s soundtrack has been sung by lead actor Dosanjh, who has earlier given voice to the Bollywood number “Ikk Kudi” from Udta Punjab. Soorma will release in theatres on June 29. It has been produced by Deepak Singh and Chitrangda Singh.
