Soorma starring Diljit Dosanjh in the lead role is based on the life journey of the legendary Hockey player and the ex-Captain, Sandeep Singh. Since it is a lesser known fact that, Sandeep Singh has been hailed as one of the world' most dangerous drag-flickers of all time with drag speeds of over 145 km/hr which led to his nickname, 'Flicker Singh'. In order to have an exposure to Sandeep Singh's life journey, the makers of Soorma held a special event in the city recently. The makers organised for a special screening which showcased a behind the scene making video of Diljit Dosanjh, who is all set to play Sandeep Singh and Taapsee Pannu. It was a complete emotional affair as people present at the event were completely moved by Sandeep's life journey on which Soorma is based on.
