Taapsee Pannu will soon be seen slaying the hockey field as Harpreet in the upcoming movie Soorma. Taapsee, who will be playing the lead opposite to Diljit Dosanjh in the biopic based on the Indian hockey player Sandeep Singh’s life, gives fans a sneak peek of the hard work that went into preparing for her role.
The two-and-a-half minute video follows Taapsee’s training and following a routine set by former Indian hockey captain Singh. In the BTS video, she’s seen learning the basic nuances and etiquette of hockey for several weeks to ace her moves as well as the aesthetics before shooting for the film.
Taapsee lauded Sandeep for his patience and approach while teaching a sport, which she had never played before. She had earlier said on her social media that her dream had come true to learn and play the sport of hockey, given the fact that her father too was a hockey player back in his college days and had always found the sport inspiring.
Written and directed by Shaad Ali and produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Chitrangda Singh and Deepak Singh will be released worldwide on 13thJuly 2018.
