The 2 minutes 49 minutes trailer gives us a perfect glimpse at the gripping story of hockey player Sandeep Singh. The trailer starts with a carefree Sandeep who desires to impress the love of his life. Suddenly, we spot a sudden change in him when he finds his ultimate goal in the game of hockey.
Unfortunately, fate has different plans for him as when he is out on a mission to win a medal for India, an accident leaves him completely paralyzed. As a result, Sandeep not only loses out on playing the game but even his love.

Further, the movie is written and directed by Shaad Ali while music is composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and lyrics is penned by Gulzar.
Speaking about the ex-captain of the Indian hockey team, Diljit said, “There was a little embarrassment too, that being an Indian and a sports enthusiast, I didn’t know about the story, wasn’t aware of the person (Sandeep Singh). So there was a guilt that why we weren’t aware.”
He said, “It is just probably a way to rectify it, that let us be the medium to present his story. I hope now no one else says the same after the film.”
Produced by Sony Pictures Networks India, Chitrangda Singh, and Deepak Singh Soorma is scheduled to release on July 13, 2018.
Definitely, it’s a story which needs to be told.
