Wanted to work in a sports film for a long time says Taapsee Paanu

Taapsee Pannu who is currently busy with promotions of her forthcoming film Soorma said wanted to work in a sports film for a long time.

Taapsee interacted with media on the trailer launch the biopic 'Soorma' on Monday. The actress was present with the costar, Diljit Dosanjh, and crew of the film.

When asked Taapsee what drew her to take the role of Harpeet she said, "Since a long time I wanted to work on a sports film, play a role of someone who I call a real hero. So my goal was to play the role of a sports player. Obviously, I can't play Sandeep Singh but it was such an honor to be associated with this film."

The 'Judwaa 2' actress also said, as a sports enthusiast the guilt of not knowing Sandeep Singh's story drove her more to do the film.

"Especially because I felt guilty that as someone who follows all kinds of sports, I still wasn't aware of this story. My father used to play hockey at the national level but still, I was unaware of him. And I felt very guilty about it which is why I did this film. In a way to make sure the story reaches the audience."

Actress Chitrangda Singh who turned producer with the film was asked about the journey of finding a big production house to back the story and casting such bankable actors, she said, "The journey could have been far more difficult if we didn't have Sony backing this project and having this much faith. Like Neha said it was also the guilt about not knowing his story and somewhere it is our duty to do justice to his story to this man who has stood alone all this while.

I think just to have that kind of backing and support, the journey only became easier. And with Diljit and Taapsee on board, I could not have possibly asked for better people to work with. This is what we have a product of love and faith and I hope people love it."

Soorma tells the story of the international hockey player Sandeep Singh, who was paralyzed and used a wheelchair for two years after an accidental gunshot injured him in 2006. Under his captaincy, India won the 2009 Sultan Azlan Shah Cup and went on to qualify for the 2012 Olympics.

Directed by Shaad Ali, the film stars Diljit Dosanjh as Sandeep Singh, Tapsee Pannu as Harpreet, and Angad Bedi as Bikramjeet Singh. 

Produced by Sony Pictures the film is scheduled to release on 13th July 2018.
