Punjabi singer-actor Gippy Grewal is a well known name in film industry. The versatile actor is known for his many powerful performances. His last Bollywood release 'Lucknow Central' also garnered lots of appreciation for him.
After delivering such power-packed performances Gippy Grewal is coming back with 'Subedar Joginder Singh', a biopic which will be released in three languages other than Punjabi.
It is India's first biopic on a Param Vir Chakra Awardee. Sharing the first look of the film and his character on social media Gippy wrote, "Mai is layak nai, par tuhade pyaar da sadka
Mai Apni jaan la ti is mahaan atma de kirdaar nu nibhaun vaste...🙏🙏🙏
Subedar Joginder Singh served the British Indian Army pre-independence and later in the Indian Army. He fought for the independence of the nation and then fought to keep that independence intact and before achieving martyrdom he fought for the honour of India, in 1962 when China infiltrated in the country with evil intentions. It was due to the sheer mental strength that despite the exhausting ammunition and being hit by a bullet on the thigh, Subedar Joginder Singh kept motivating his soldiers against all odds, along with that he single-handedly killed dozens of Chinese soldiers with Bayonets. The Government of India honoured him with the highest wartime gallantry award, Param Vir Chakra posthumously.
Gippy Grewal is playing the role of the martyr. To essay, the character with perfection Gippy underwent a rigorous training and gained the look of the martyr.
Other than Gippy Grewal film also features Guggu Gill, Kulwinder Billa, Aditi Sharma, Rajvir Jawanda, Roshan Prince, Karamjit Anmol and Sardar Sohi in prominent characters.
'Subedar Joginder Singh' is produced by Seven Colors Motion Pictures in association with Saga Music and Unisys Infosolutions. It is directed by Simerjit Singh and will be released in 2018.
