Diljit Dosanjh to play hockey champion Sandeep Singh in biopic

‘Soorma’ will also star Taapsee Pannu, Chitrangada Singh and Deepak Singh.

Punjabi actor and singer Diljit Dosanjh will play former hockey team captain Sandeep Singh in Shaad Ali’s upcoming film Soorma. Singh was a penalty corner specialist for the Indian team, and led India to victory in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in 2009.

The sports biopic will also star Taapsee Pannu, Chitrangada Singh and Deepak Singh, and will explore Singh’s comeback after being severely injured in an accidental shooting incident. The movie will be released on June 29, 2018.

The biopic is the latest addition to a growing list of films about sports. These include Kabir Khan’s account of India’s victory in the Cricket World Cup in 1983, Viacom18 Pictures’ film on Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj, and a biopic of Saina Nehwal, starring Shraddha Kapoor.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
