Soorma directed by Shaad Ali is finally going to hit the screens today, July 13. The sports film, starring iconic Punjabi Musician Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu is based on the former Indian hockey team captain Sandeep Singh’s struggling life, who was paralysed and used a wheelchair for 2 years after an accidental gunshot injured him in 2006.

Many actors have already praised the film, including Shabana Azmi, Randeep Hooda, Neha Dhupia and Chitrangada Singh on Twitter.
While the film is going to release tomorrow, it has already garnered much attention on social media from fans and followers.
The film comes after the massive success of Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, which surpassed the success of Salman Khan’s Race 3. While Sanju was a biopic of Sanjay Dutt, Soorma is a biopic on Flicker Singh (Sandeep Singh).
Film buffs will also see a biopic on Human Rights Activist Malala Yousafzai, titled Gul Makai. The film traces the journey of Malala from her early days in Swat Valley, Pakistan, who is the youngest Noble peace prize winner.
