Bollywood actress Chitrangda Singh who had produced ‘Soorma’ as her first production, a film based on a true story of Sandeep Singh, former captain of the Indian Hockey Team, starring Diljit Dosanjh and Taapse Paanu, has now bagged the rights to another inspirational story of incredible bravery of Subedar Yogender Yadav.
Yadav fought in the Kargil war and till date is the youngest ever to receive the Param Vir Chakra at the age of 19. He also remains as one of the three only living recipients of the PVC ever in the country’s history and has since continued to serve in the Indian Army.
“I’m very excited to tell stories of real heroes that are many times forgotten even though they still live amongst us. We need to glorify their journey. This will be another attempt to do what I tried with Soorma”, says Chitrangda.
The rights of the movie are with CSfilms co-owned with Deepak Singh.
Over the years, Chitrangda has worked in films like ‘Desi Boyz’, ‘Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3’, and ‘Baazaar’ to name a few.
Recently, Chitrangda essayed the role of Abhishek Bachchan’s wife in ‘Bob Biswas’, a spin-off of the 2012 movie ‘Kahani’. It also marked the directorial debut of Diya Annapurna Ghosh, daughter of ‘Kahani’ director Sujoy Ghosh.
She was also seen alongside Arshad Warsi in ‘Modern Love: Mumbai’.
