Earlier, Sachin Tendulkar also praised the biopic after watching it at a special screening. The cricket legend found the movie to be very inspiring and said: “Fantastic movie, it is really inspiring. We all followed Hockey but something like this had happened to Sandeep I was not aware of honestly. So, I am so happy that Shiva, Shaad, Diljit and Angad, who I have seen grow up as a kid, have done a brilliant job.”
“This is extremely inspiring not just for a sportsman but generally for everyone. I think it is a terrific story and must watch movie because it is a great story and it really portrays the never say die attitude and standing back on your feet to deliver is something that this movie teaches you,” he added. The cricketer was joined by director Shaad Ali at the screening.
The film is an inspirational story of the hockey legend who was paralysed after he was hit by an accidental gunshot on a train in 2006. Apart from Diljit Dosanjh, Taapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi and Siddharth Shukla are also in key roles. The film releases tomorrow.
