Actress Taapsee Pannu began shooting for a biopic based on former captain of the Indian national hockey team Sandeep Singh here on Monday. The film will also feature Diljit Dosanjh and Angad Bedi. “I was really looking forward to join this film as sports is an important part of my life. Shooting at one of my most favourite places in India, Punjab…. With a few days of hockey sessions already completed and many more to come, I am looking forward to playing on my home ground,” Taapsee said in a statement.

The biopic is a love story revolving around Taapsee and Diljit, where both are playing the role of hockey players. Helmed by Shaad Ali, the film will be releasing next year. Taapsee Pannu, who took the audience by surprise with her glam avatar in her recent outing Judwaa 2, is now once again all set to create magic on the big screens as she starts shooting for the Sandeep Singh biopic.
