AKSHAY VS DILJIT COMPARISON: 'SOORMA' HAS A PERFECT REPLY TO IT

Though the highly-anticipated films of superstar Akshay Kumar and Diljit Dosanjh, 'Gold' and 'Soorma' are based on hockey but the stories are completely different. Whereas the recently released 'Gold' trailer is receiving all the media attention, the official trailer of 'Soorma' has already been in news. And when such clashes generally occur in Bollywood comparisons are quite expected. This is what's happening with Dosanjhna-wala right now, seems like Diljit is not at all in favor of this comparison. While talking to leading daily the Punjabi megastar said; "He is a superstar and his work is appreciated by all. People vouch for his commendable work. I, on the other hand, have just started. There can't be a comparison because he is a star, and I, a fresher." Of the trends of biopics in Bollywood, Diljit told DNA, "This trend must last. It is a good thing if it does. People should know about all the people who in some way or the other inspire us. Inspiring stories are needed." Films on the national game, Hockey are always inspiring and not just hockey but mostly every sports film is not just liked by sportspersons but also common people. In an interview to a leading TV channel, Diljit had once also revealed; "I watched all sports films, Chak De! India, Dhoni, Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. When these films come out people talk about the sport and sports personalities. They learn more than they already know. These are also our real heroes; they make the country proud." While Soorma is a biographical sports drama based on the life of hockey player Sandeep Singh. The film is directed by Shaad Ali and produced by Sony Pictures Networks India and C.S. Films. Staring Diljit Dosanjh and Tapsee Pannu in lead roles it is scheduled to release on 13 July 2018. Gold is an upcoming historical sports drama directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under the Excel Entertainment banner. It stars Akshay Kumar, Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Kumar Singh, Amit Sadh, Sunny Kaushal. The film traces the “golden era” of Indian hockey through the journey of Tapan Das, a young assistant manager in 1936, who dreams of playing for an independent nation.
