Sports films seem to have caught the fancy of several Bollywood filmmakers in a big way. In 2020, there is going to be an avalanche of such outings at the box-office. The first sports movie of the year is Kangana Ranaut’s Panga, slated to arrive in cinemas on 24th January. Panga will be followed by Ranveer Singh’s ’83, Farhan Akhtar’s Toofan, Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey and Ajay Devgn’s Maidaan, to name a few.
The latest we hear that actress-turned-producer Chitrangada Singh, who was last seen in Emmay Entertainment’s Baazaar (2018), is planning to roll out a sequel to her 2018 production, Soorma. Starring Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles, Soorma was a biographical drama based on the life of hockey player Sandeep Singh. Though the movie was not a huge money spinner upon its release, it did recover its cost and yielded some profit as well.

Soorma will now be getting a sequel and it will be bankrolled once again by Chitrangada Singh. A source close to her informs a popular publication that Soorma 2 will be ready to hit the shooting floor soon.
“Chitrangada has always been drawn to strong scripts and ‘Soorma 2’ is no different. She is now working in a very focused way on locking in the rest of the details around the film, and it should be ready to go on the floor very soon,” divulges the source.
Just like Soorma, its sequel will also be based on a real-life hero cantering on his inspirational story. More details are expected to arrive soon.
