Real ‘Soorma’ Sandeep Singh recollects his train tragedy with Diljit Dosanjh; watch video

The hockey player has definitely won the medical battle and emerged victoriously, but the incident is still fresh in Sandeep’s mind so he never sat in the locomotive since then. However, ahead of his biopic Soorma’s release, Sandeep Singh travelled in a train for the film’s promotions. This small journey might help in making him overcome his biggest phobia ever since the tragic incident.

In an interaction with News 18, Sandeep shared a story of how the tragedy changed his life. He was seen as emotional yet confident while sharing the memory.

Ace hockey player Sandeep was paralyzed for 2 years and had almost finished his Hockey career after the dreadful experience, but it was his determination and love for the game brought him back and he won several medals for our country.

Sandeep took to his social media and posted a picture from the train and tweeted, ” Feel blessed coz I have my three brothers @diljitdosanjh #bikram pajji and we three miss our fourth brother @Imangadbedi love you always 🙏😍 feel amazing after long traveling in train 😜”

He was travelling with his brother Bikramjeet and actor Diljit Dosanjh who plays his character in upcoming film Soorma. Soorma was deliberately shot in Sandeep’s hometown Shahabad as the director was keen on capturing the real essence of his journey.

A fighter to the core, Sandeep did not give up and continued his hard work on the turf, Sandeep’s story is so inspirational that a Bollywood biopic is being made on his life where his role is portrayed by actor/singer Diljit Dosanjh.

Sandeep is regarded as the most dangerous drag-flickers of all time with drag speeds of over 145 km/hr which led to his nickname, ‘Flicker Singh’. The drag-flickers journey – of wins, losses, life, and death – has seen on-screen in Soorma, a Shaad Ali directorial, starring Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu.
