‘Saand Ki Aankh’: Meet the bold shooter Daadis who proved age is just a number
Tushar Hiranandani is all set to showcase the ever so inspiring story of world’s oldest sharpshooters Chandra Tomar and Prakashi Tomar in his upcoming film ‘Saand Ki Aankh‘. The film will see Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar playing the lead the role. Today Taapsee gave us a sneak-peek into the inspiring journey of these sharpshooters. And if we have to sum up their journey in one word then we would say its freakin’ unbelievable.
Sharing the video of these shooter Daadis (grandmas), Taapsee took to her Twitter handle and wrote, “Old is bold and it’s an honour to portray their terrific stories that are untold”. For sixty years in their life, Prakashi and Chandra had never done anything apart from taking care of their families and house. Until one day their granddaughter took them to a shooting range. There they picked up the gun, loaded it(something their young granddaughter wasn’t able to) and hit the bull’s eye.
Within a year they won a medal in Delhi and then there was no looking back. Since then these Daadis have individually won more than 350 medals in several state and national level shooting competitions. And not just that they have trained several young girls and even generated employment for them. They still continue to inspire everyone out there. Now if this story doesn’t inspire you then we wonder what else will?

Chandra Tomar and Prakashi Tomar have even appeared on Aamir Khan‘s show ‘Satyamev Jayate’.
Hats off to these world’s oldest shooters and we are extremely proud of them.
Both Taapsee and Bhumi are undergoing rigorous training in order to get under the skin of their on-screen characters. Bankrolled by Reliance Entertainment, Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar, ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ also stars Vineet Singh in a pivotal role.
