When Diljit was asked about the kind of preparation that he had to do in order to play Sandeep Singh onscreen, Diljit told the media that he was specially trained by Sandeep Singh himself. "Sandeep Singh and his elder brother were always there on the film set so, I didn't face much difficulty to portray character of Sandeep Singh onscreen because they were monitoring the film shoot and if there were any mistakes from my side then, they quickly used to rectify that," IANS quoted him as saying.
The trailer of Soorma launched on Monday and it wouldn't be wrong to say that it is viral already. The trailer has over 2.4 million views on YouTube. The 3-minute video showcases us the journey of Sandeep Singh's life and his struggle.
