Taapsee Pannu is a bankable actor, there’s no doubt about that. She has proved her acting prowess in films like Baby, Naam Shabana, Pink, etc. From her sweet bubbly looks to her fierce action skills, the actor can fit into any role, chic to challenging. Her next release is a biopic where she will be seen alongside Diljit Dosanjh.
We have already seen Diljit Dosanjh’s photos with Hockey star Sandeep Singh and it’s no news that ‘Soorma’ is based on the life and struggles of the sports-star. The film also stars Taapsee Pannu in a pivotal role.
The film has been in news right from the day it was announced. Just three days ago, Diljit’s look as the ace athlete was released and fans had gone crazy. And now, the release of the first motion poster has definitely raised our expectations. The poster introduces the character of the female lead, Taapsee Pannu, as Harpreet aka Preet:
The lady captioned the video as:
For my undying love for sports and my country……
Meet Harpreet aka Preet – a person who believes in pushing boundaries on as well as off the field!
Know her story on 13th July. #Soorma

Placing her as a dreamer, believer and achiever, the motion poster tells that Harpreet (or Preet) is “A Daughter, A Sportsperson, A Brave Spirit”. Just like Dosanjh, even the leading lady has undergone rigorous training for the film.
The actor had shared her behind the scenes pics from the hockey field and indeed looked every bit, the fit and sporty character. In fact, her posts showed that she has developed quite a fascination for the sport.
Well, from the looks of it, we are sure Ms. Pannu will justify her role as an athlete. After all, her dedication should pay off. Wish you the best, Taapsee!!!
Soorma is based on the inspiring journey of India’s former Hockey Captain Sandeep Singh who re-invented his career as a sportsman after being hit by a bullet which rendered him paralysed for more than two weeks. The film is set to hit the theatres on July 13th.
