‘Soorma’ is a story inspired by a real story and director Shaad Ali has tried to keep it as real as possible.
The director, before starting the shoot and while shooting the movie too, watched many footages of Sandeep Singh available online as well as with Sandeep himself.
They even visited the places various incidents happened and met the people related to Sandeep's life-changing journey.
There are few iconic scenes from Sandeep's life which are recreated to keep the film’s core intact.
Like Sandeep Singh was lifted by his entire team after a great performance in an international match, Shaad has recreated the same moment in the film as well.
The film has been shot in his hometown Shahabad to capture the real essence of his struggle and the journey to become the hockey legend.
‘Soorma’ is the story of a forgotten hero Sandeep Singh, whose story promises to inspire every individual in some or the other way.

Sandeep Singh's inspiring story had the makers keen to bring his life on the silver screen.
‘Soorma’ will feature Diljit Dosanjh essaying the role of Sandeep Singh alongside Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi in the pivotal roles.
