Actress Taapsee Pannu has begun shooting for a biopic based on the former captain of the Indian national hockey team, Sandeep Singh. The film will also feature Diljit Dosanjh and Angad Bedi.
“I was really looking forward to joining this film as sports is an important part of my life. Shooting at one of my most favourite places in India — Punjab.... With a few days of hockey sessions already completed and many more to come, I am looking forward to playing on my home ground,” Pannu said in a statement.
The biopic is a love story revolving around Pannu and Dosanjh, where both essay the role of hockey players.
Directed by Shaad Ali, the film will release next year.
