Taapsee Pannu look outstanding in her new looks from the movie Soorma

Taapsee Pannu has just disclosed to her fans her look for Soorma, based on the life of former Indian national hockey team captain, Sandeep Singh.

The still is from the shooting of her upcoming film opposite Diljit Dosanjh titled Soorma. Helmed by Shaad Ali, Soorma is based on the life of hockey legend Sandeep Singh.

taapsee’s latest photo on her Instagram page shows the actor, wearing an Indian jersey, standing in an open field with her back to the camera. The caption with the image reads, “Only if I wasn’t an actor……. we know how talented is she, she had earned power-packed performances in films such as Pink and Naam Shabana, and now she will be seen playing a hockey player in the film, which apparently dwells on the love story between the characters played by Diljit and Taapsee in the film.

While the film isn’t a biopic, it explores an important chapter of Sandeep Singh’s life. While the exact details are still unknown, the film is set to be directed by Shaad Ali.

Field hockey star Sandeep Singh indeed has had quite a chequered career — he was accidentally shot in 2006, just before he was to leave for the World Cup in Germany, and had to spend two years of his life in a wheelchair. But Singh, who made his international debut in 2004, bounced back and went on to captain the national team. Under his captaincy, the Indian team won the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in 2009.

Taapsee and Diljit also went through extensive hockey training before they commenced shooting for the film in Punjab in October. With a stellar cast like this, we are sure that this project is something to watch out for.
