The recently released Soorma Anthem which showcases the glimpses of Diljit Dosanjh practising on a Railway station has a backstory behind it. It is an unknown fact that Sandeep Singh who was shot with a bullet in a Railway compartment made him practise the game more at the Railway station. Sandeep Singh who was trying to recover from his injury deliberately chose to practise Hockey at Railway premises to recover quickly. A similar scene has been retained in the film where Diljit is seen practising on a Railway platform. Soorma Anthem perfectly escapades how there are no mountains high enough for those who stand tall.
