The wait is finally over! The trailer of Diljit Dosanjh’s highly awaited film Soorma is out. Written and directed by Shaad Ali, Soorma is a biopic on the life of Indian hockey player Sandeep Singh. The movie will trace the life journey of ex-captain of Indian Hockey team. Diljit, who plays the titular role of Sandeep in the biopic, has been treating us with several posters and teasers. In the trailer, Diljit’s transformation as Hockey player Sandeep Singh is beyond praise.
Diljit took to his Twitter handle to unveil the trailer and tweeted,”#Soorma Trailer .. Agar Acha Lagge Toh Plz Share.” The gripping trailer begins with voice-over of Diljit Dosanjh and is heard saying, “Bachpan se meri aur Hockey ki kabhi bani hi nahi.” He clashes with Preet played by Taapsee Pannu which in a kind inspires him to start playing hockey and score a goal for the country. The trailer proceeds with the captions, “On 22nd August 2006 India lost a champion” when Sandeep Singh gets accidentally shot by a RPF jawan in a train. He was forgotten by his country and abandoned by his love but when a champion died, a legend was born – this is what Soorma is all about. Needless to say, the trailer will keep you on the edge of your seat. Indian Hockey player Sandeep Singh also attended the trailer launch event.

Going by the trailer, we can say that Diljit Dosanjh has done an amazing job and have gone to great lengths to get into the skin of his character. While talking about essaying the role of Sandeep Singh in the biopic, Diljit had earlier said in a press statement that he is proud to be part of Soorma. He said,“I feel proud to be part of Soorma, a biopic made on Sandeep Singh. Sandeep has never failed to make India proud, be it on field or off it, he keeps setting the benchmark higher.” Adding to this, the singer turned actor said, “I knew that he was the captain but didn’t know he was shot on his back. When I started playing hockey, I realised the entire game relies on your back- you have to bend to play it. So the pressure is double. What I didn’t know was, how a man who was shot, stood up, recovered and made a world record.” Soorma that also features Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi in pivotal roles, is slated to hit theatres on July 13th 2018.
