Sartaj Singh Pannu made headlines some time ago due to his controversial film Nanak Shah Fakir. The agitations against the film got so strong that it got banned and thus, the content could not reach the audiences. The man had really researched a lot for this film but chalo, there were strong reasons for opposition to this particular project.
Later, he was also announced as the director for the Hockey based film Khido Khundi but the deal ultimately landed in Rohit Jugraj's kitty and rest was history. Now, Sartaj Singh Pannu has bagged a big Bollywood project with a well-known production house and seems like this is his winning move.
Pannu is currently working on an upcoming movie named 'Om'. They have almost completed the shoot of this film which has Sartaj Singh Pannu as the director and Sandeep Patil as the DOP. The movie is penned by Shiv Singh. The music of 'Om' is with T- series. We would see new lead faces in the movie. Dikhsha Kaushal, Arjun Singh, Nitin Sharma, and Jatin Sarhna would be seen playing pivotal roles. It will be released under the banner of Eros International Media and Jar Pictures.

Sartaj’s last Punjabi project was Tiger which starred Sippy Gill in the lead role. The movie released in 2016 and post that we haven’t seen him in the front panel for any other Punjabi project.
Well, this one seems to be a big project so here's wishing him all the best and hope that this one is the turning point of his career. The movie is all set to release in April 2019.
