While the buzz has it that Reema Kagti’s film is a biopic that revolves around the journey of a player who wanted to win an Olympic Gold in hockey for independent India, the film’s producer Ritesh Sidhwani refuted the reports.
While speaking to PTI, Ritesh said, “It is not a biopic. It is a completely fictional story but it is set against a real backdrop between 1933-48 India about what the country was, the sports… About hockey. It is not based on any character.”
