Punjab and Hockey have a very deep connection. Known as the Mecca of Hockey, the state recently gave 12 players to the 20-member Indian contingent scheduled to participate in a four-nation tournament in Tauranga and Hamilton, New Zealand. Apart from this, the state has given many legendary Hockey players who helped in putting India on the Global map with Hockey.

As Punjabi Cinema is growing, Harjeeta can be considered as the first sports biopic of this industry. As the story of the movie revolves around Indian Hockey Player Harjeet Singh Tuli and his achievements. It will show a real story of a real Punjabi village boy who went on to make his name around the world. This surely ignites the itch to watch the movie.
