Since its trailer launch, Soorma starring Diljit Dosanjh as ex-Indian hockey Sandeep Singh has created a positive stir for the film.
The film starring Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu is based on the life of Sandeep highlighting his accident and hardship thereafter.
In order to get into the skin of the character, the Punjabi actor/singer included a whole new set of the day-to-day regime.
Check out these 5 things Diljit Dosanjh did in order to ace Sandeep Singh’s character in Soorma:
Early to bed and early to rise
Diljit Dosanjh changed his sleeping habits and adapted a player’s regime for this role. He would wake up early in the morning, go out for field rounds accompanied by a hardcore cardio session. The actor also made sure his day ended early in order to get enough rest.
It’s all about Hockey
