In the poster, we see Diljit completely in his character, but he presents two versions of Sandeep – one the aggressive player who is ready to take on the rival team and on the other hand, we see him seated in a wheelchair.

Sandeep Singh is an ace hockey player, and an ex-captain of the Indian National Team. In 2006, Singh was seriously injured after being hit by an accidental gunshot in a train . He was on his way to join the national team, set to leave for the World Cup in Germany two days later. He was almost paralysed and was on the wheel chair for two years. Singh not only recovered from that serious injury, but also established himself again in the team.

The biopic will also feature Taapsee Pannu in the lead role. The flick is slated to hit the theatres on June 29, 2018.
