Aishwarya Rai and Randeep Hooda starrer “Sarbjit” is most awaited film of this year and now we have their first look!
Aishwarya, who plays Sarabjit Singh’s sister Dalbir Kaur, is seen in a salwar kameez, sporting a heart-wrenchingly sad expression, sitting on table wondering about her brother. The film will be narrated through the perspective of Dalbir Kaur aka Aishwarya Rai.
On the other hand, Randeep is seen portraying the young Sarabjit in the picture. Looks like Sarbjit aka Randeep was fan of Dangal in the film.
Sarbjit Singh was an Indian national convicted of terrorism and spying by a Pakistani court. After a brief trial in the Lahore High Court he was condemned and sentenced to death in 1991, but the sentence was repeatedly postponed by the Government of Pakistan. While in prison in April 2013, he was attacked by fellow inmates and died six days later at Jinnah Hospital, Lahore.
Richa Chadda plays the role of Sarbjit’s wife in the film. This would mark the second biopic from Omung Kumar. First one being the sports biopic based on boxer Mary Kom.
Movie is slated for May 19, 2016 and will also be screened at the Cannes Film Festival 2016.
