Soorma: First poster of Diljit-starrer perfectly celebrates Sandeep Singh’s spirit
After directing rom-coms and romantic-dramas, Shaad Ali has moved his way towards biopics. The director is currently busy with his next which is a biopic on Hockey champion Sandeep Singh. The movie stars Diljit Dosanjh in the lead role, and has Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi in pivotal roles.
Yesterday, the first look of the film was unveiled, and today, the first official poster of the movie has been released. The poster featuring Diljit perfectly celebrates Sandeep’s spirit. Diljit took to Twitter to unveil the poster. He tweeted, “A hockey stick and a bullet…One gave direction to his life while the other changed it forever! #SOORMA – The greatest comeback story ever! ?29th June ? @sonypicsprodns @taapsee @Imangadbedi @Flicker_Singh @SnehaRajani @IChitrangda @shaadesh @thecsfilms.”

Titled as ‘Soorma’, the movie is produced by Sony Pictures, Chitrangda Singh and Deepak Singh. The film will be hitting the screens on June 29, 2018. (Also Read: REAL TO REEL: Diljit Dosanjh aces the look of hockey player Sandeep Singh)
This will be Diljit’s third Bollywood film after ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Phillauri’. It will be for the first time when we will get to see Taapsee and Diljit on the big screen together. While we know what character Diljit is playing, we are yet to get an idea about the role Taapsee will be portraying in the film.
Talking about Sandeep Singh, the Hockey champion was seriously injured after being hit by an accidental gunshot in a train. He was on a wheelchair for almost two years, but then he recovered and was back on field to play hockey.
The makers are using the hashtag ‘#DontLetThisStoryPass’ to promote their film and it looks like Sandeep’s story is surely something we would love to see and not pass. With Diljit playing the lead role, we have a lot of expectations from the film, and with Taapsee playing a pivotal role, we are really expecting this movie to be a great one.
