As per reports, “Inkaar” performing artist Chitrangda Singh is good to go to make a biopic on the hockey ace and India’s previous skipper, Sandeep Singh. Obviously, the performer had acquired rights to the film, which is to be directed by Shaad Ali, three years prior.
And, now if reports are to be trusted, Punjabi performing artist, Diljit Dosanjh, who made his Bollywood debut with ‘Udta Punjab’ signed by on-screen character Chitrangda Singh to play Sandeep Singh.
Ex-hockey skipper, Sandeep Singh is right now employed with the Haryana Police as deputy superintendent. Sandeep, who played as a full-back and was a penalty corner specialist, grabbed headlines when he made a comeback to the field after a freak incident.
There has been the talk of Chitrangda turning independent film producer for quite a while. While Chitrangda needed to roll the film much earlier, it was the search for the perfect actor to play Sandeep that delayed the film. In fact, the hockey ace had once confessed to wanting Ranbir Kapoor to play him after in ‘Rocket Singh’.
The project is likely going to roll later this year and according to a source will be helmed by Shaad Ali.
