Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s new movie “SARBJIT” is one of the most awaited movies on the month. The story as understood by the people is going to be emotionally absorbing. The film stars Randeep Hooda and Richa Chaddha as well. The film is based on the life of Sarabjit Singh, who convicted for alleged bomb blasts in Lahore and Faisalabad. The film is produced by Vashu Bhagnani and directed by Omung Kumar. Randeep Hooda portrays the main lead while Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plays his sister’s role. The story is narrated through her perspective.
Sarabjit Singh, born in 1963 was a farmer from India, who was tried and convicted by Supreme Court of Pakistan for a series of bomb attacks in Lahore and Faisalabad that killed 14 people in 1990.
As per unofficial Indian sources, Singh has been a spy for the Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) intelligence agency and had been working undercover in Pakistan. After a trial, he was sentenced to death in 1991, but the execution was postponed by the Government of Pakistan. Many attempts made by his sister Dalbir Kaur and the Indian Government to convince the Government of Pakistan to convey that Sarabjit is innocent were curbed time and again. While in the Kot Lakhpat
Jail, Lahore in April 2013, he was attacked by fellow jail-mates and six days later he died due to the injuries at Jinnah Hospital, Lahore.
The film “Sarbjit” was screened on Sunday, 15 th of May, 2016 at the French Rivera and the people who were able to watch this screening were quite impressed with the film and especially Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s performance. With the amount of hard-work the cast and crew have put in to make this biopic, they deserve all the praises. Randeep Hooda shed 18 kg in less than a month for the starved, weak look of Sarabjit Singh in the film. “SARBJIT” will be released in theaters on May 20th .
Richa Chadda will be seen playing the love interest of Randeep Hooda.
The film is sure to win many awards, judging by the Cannes reviews. Let’s see if the film is excitingenough to impress the Indian crowd who are more into racy plots rather than serious dramas.
