Chitrangada Says "Biopic Should Be Told Truthfully

Chitrangada's statement on biopics

New Delhi: Soorma Producer, Chitrangada says "biopic should be  narrated truthfully" .She stated: “It is a very powerful story and since it is a biopic it should be told truthfully. Sometimes we do dramatise things and I had promised Sandeep that we would be truthful to his story. There is nothing we have added for the sake of cinema”, she further added "Ninety per cent of the film is true, just 10 per cent is not because we couldn’t take names of certain people and we couldn’t get some permissions. There is no fake incident that has been created, it is all real,” 
At a time when Bollywood is bringing on celluloid inspiring tales of sports stars from Milkha Singh to MS Dhoni, Chitrangada says making a biopic on somebody who is not known enough was challenging.
She stated: "We need to make heroes out of people we don't know and that doesn't mean they are less heroic. In our society, there are so many people who are heroes in their own right and we don't know about them, their achievements,"

 The movie is helmed Shaad Ali and is the story of hockey player Sandeep Singh, who was paralysed after he being shot in the back while he was on the way to join the national team headed for the Hockey World Cup in 2006. The former Indian captain was at the peak of his career at that time. But being as passionate as he was, Sandeep Singh got on his feet again and returned to the game and re-established himself. 
Chitrangada met Sandeep in Delhi through a friend and felt apologetic for not being aware of his life and his struggles which left her in the state of "disbelief" "I was apologetic that I did not know anything about him. When I heard his story, I was blown away. It is an unbelievable feat that he made a great comeback. I have been around sports people all my life, I know it is extremely difficult to make a comeback. It was absolute disbelief."
