Sharing the Soorma poster on Twitter, the actor-singer summed up the inspirational story of Hockey legend Sandeep Singh in the caption: “A hockey stick and a bullet...One gave direction to his life while the other changed it forever! Soorma - The greatest comeback story ever!” Written and directed by Shaad Ali, Soorma is scheduled to arrive in theatres on June 29.
The movie is based on the life of the ex-captain of the Indian National Hockey Team, who made a comeback in Hockey after being accidentally shot in 2006, which left him on paralysed for two years. Twitterati seemed pretty supportive of Diljit Dosanjh’s new movie and only had words of praise.
One of the comments read, “These are the kind of stories people need to see. Thanks for inspiring people with your work,” while another added: “Poster looks awesome Soorma ! Best of luck!” Soorma will be a co-produced venture by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Chitrangda Singh and Deepak Singh.
Diljit Dosanjh will be seen with actors Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi in the biopic.
