Taapsee has performed various kinds of roles and she keeps surprising her fans with her experiments. The actor is all set to don a hockey player’s hat in her next film titled Soorma. Bollywood films based on hockey seem to have achieved success. Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu will work together for the first time in a biopic based on the life of hockey legend Sandeep Singh. Taapsee has always gone an extra mile to achieve perfection in her method acting. She will be seen playing a hockey player in Soorma.
The Judwa 2 actor has made a revelation on Instagram. She posted a still of her in a hockey jersey and revealed that if she wasn’t an actor, we would have seen her on the hockey field. The still is from the shooting of her upcoming film.
While we have seen Diljit Dosanjh’s representation of Sandeep Singh earlier with the release of the first look and poster of the film, this is the first time we see Taapsee in her Soorma gear. And boy, she has managed to get us intrigued. Though the picture has been taken to showcase Taapsee’s back with Harpreet written on it, her plaited hair, knee length socks and sports shoes are enough to form a lasting image of her character in our mind.
The film is inspired from and salutes the spirit of athlete Sandeep Singh, the Hockey champion who was seriously injured after being hit by an accidental gunshot in Shatabadi train, while on his way to join the national team. He was almost paralysed and on wheel chair for two years of his life. But, Singh not only recovered from that serious injury, but also established himself again in the team.
Taapsee and Diljit went through extensive hockey training before they commenced shooting for the film in Punjab in October. With a stellar cast like this, we are sure that this project is something to watch out for.
