The recently released trailer of ‘Soorma’ depicts Diljit Dosanjh completely embodying the character of iconic hockey player Sandeep Singh, proving that writer-director Shaad Ali was right to follow his instincts when casting.

According to Ali, “Diljit was the obvious choice for the film because he looked the part. I was not trying to find too much resemblance. That was not my criteria, because I was just trying to go with the look, who would look honest in that part.”, DNA reported.

He added that casting process for the biopic was challenging, “Biopics come with an added responsibility because you are dealing with a real-life person. It’s not easy to make a biopic, but if you work with that persona and his or her family, things get easy.”

‘Soorma’ also stars Tapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi, and will release on 13th July.
