Karan Johar drove away our Monday morning blues by dropping the trailer of the much awaited Ishaan Khatter- Janhvi Kapoor starrer Dhadak. And now it's time to make way for yet another impressive trailer. We are talking about the first sneak-peek of Diljit Dosanjh- Taapsee Pannu starrer Soorma.
For those who ain't aware, the film is based on the life of former India hockey captain Sandeep Singh. The trailer begins with a carefree Sandeep wanting to woo his lady love, only to find his ultimate goal in the game of hockey. Unfortunately, just when he sets out to win a medal for India, an accidental gunshot leaves him paralysed. The rest of the plot revolves around Sandeep Singh finally succeeds to reach his goal.
Going by the looks of the trailer, one can say that Diljit Dosanjh has perfectly moulded himself as a hockey player in Soorma. Taapsee Pannu too looks promising. Check out the trailer right away here-
Reportedly Diljit underwent an intense physical training and diet changes to prepare for the role of the ex-hockey player and in fact, was trained by Sandeep Singh himself.
Speaking about Diljit's role in the film, Singh was earlier quoted as saying, "Apart from being a good singer, he's a fantastic actor. He's extremely hardworking. I'm really happy that he's playing me in the movie. It's not an easy thing to portray a real-life character on screen. My main motto was to teach him drag flick only as it's the most difficult skill in hockey and he has done a great job. Whatever hockey sequences you will see in the movie has been done by Diljit only."
On the other hand, Diljit had revealed that initially he felt that this was just another hockey film. He was quoted as saying, "What I knew was it was a hockey film and there were already a lot of sports films being made and I thought it was better to stay away from the genre. I told them, 'I would do anything else for you guys for free but not this.' Then they asked me to hear the script once. After listening to the script, I realised I was stupid to have said no to the film."
Helmed by Shaad Ali, Soorma is slated to release on 13th July, 2018.
