Taapsee Pannu is soaring high on the success of her lastrelease Judwaa 2 starring Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez. While the film has given Taapsee Pannu a much needed glamourous avatar, Taapsee Pannu even wrapped up her next film Mulk. The actress is now shooting for her next film where she is playing a sports personality.
With Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles, Shaad Ali’s next film will trace the life story of Sandeep Singh. The film titled Soorma will star both the actors as hockey players. Sharing a picture from the sets of the film, Taapsee is seen standing upright donning the Indian Hockey jersey. Flaunting her jersey with plaited hair, knee length socks and sports shoes, Taapsee wrote, “Only if I wasn’t an actor……. #Soorma #LoveForSports #IndianJersey.”
For the uninitiated, Sandeep Singh, also known as Flicker Singh, suffered a serious gunshot injury in 2006, two years after his international debut as a hockey player. After being paralyzed for two years on a wheelchair, the hockey player showed courage and dedication as he not only recovered from the trauma but also started playing the game again. He went on to become the captain of the Indian national hockey team and currently holds a DSP rank in Haryana Police.
