Following to the release of Judwaa 2, Taapsee Pannu will be starting the shoots of Shaad Ali’s next movie. Diljit Dosanjh will play the lead in the movie opposite Taapsee. The movie is based on the life of a hockey player. Hockey ex-captain Sandeep Singh is expected to be inspiration behind the movie. It can be either a biopic or a part of his life. According to source “It’s a beautifully woven love story about two ace hockey players, where the woman helps the man achieve his dream and go on to lead the country. It’s a romantic journey of loss and love, dreams and hope”
In the year 2006, Sandeep Singh has been selected for the Indian Hockey Team that is supposed to leave for World Cup in Germany. However, Sandeep has been shot accidentally while travelling through train. Due to this injury, Sandeep has been paralyzed. For couple of years, he cannot even move from the wheel chair.
As a result of his sheer will power, Sandeep has not only stood up on his feet. He has started to play for the country too. He has even won the Man of the Tournament in the Sultan Azlan Shah Tournament. Silver medal has been bagged by Sandeep too in Commonwealth Games 2010 that has been organized in Delhi. During Indian Hockey League between 2013 and 2015, he has scored highest number of goals which is 178. Similar number of goals have been scored by Sandeep internationally also. Taapsee will be seen in a character that stays behind Sandeep always. Professionally, Taapsee will appear as a hockey player also. Due to her push and motivation, Sandeep has begun to move towards sports once again.
Both Diljit and Taapsee will be trained in hockey by professionals. From 4th October, shooting of the movie will be started. Sneha Rajani and Chitrangada Singh are the producers of movie.
