Panaji, Nov 28 : This year as an extension of the Khelo India Branding, Indian Sports Biopics are being screened at the 49th International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
As part of this initiative, film Soorma, a biopic on the extra-ordinary journey of hockey player Sandeep Singh, was screened in the presence of Producer, Chitrangada Singh and Director, Shaad Ali, in the city on Tuesday.
Speaking at the occasion, Chitrangada Singh said, “We knew we had the right intent and right content to make the film. This is a small effort to make a hero out of a real-life hero. Here’s to Sandeep Singh.”
