Regarding the film, Ronnie Screwvala said that I think there can be no better director than Abhishek Chaubey to direct this film. It will be fun to work with him again after ‘Sonchidiya’. Dhyan Chand is the biggest icon of Indian sports, about which unfortunately the youth know very little. I cannot wait to bring this film to the audience.
Let us know that Ronnie Screwvala has produced films like Rang De Basanti, Swades, Wednesday, Uri and Barfi besides Sonchiriya. At the same time, Abhishek Chaubey has directed brilliant films like Udta Punjab, Ishqiya, Dedh Ishqiya.
