Biopics are the new flavour of the season in Bollywood. Omung Kumar who previously made the Priyanka Chopra starrer 'Mary Kom' is now making a biopic on Sarabjit Singh.
We already know that Randeep Hooda and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are a part of this film. The latest scoop is that Omung has roped in Richa Chadha to play Randeep's wife in the flick.
Randeep essays the title role whereas Ash will be seen playing his sister Dalbir Kaur. Though the film is Sarabjit's story, it will be told through the eyes of his sister who after he was convicted of terrorism and spying by the Pakistani court and sentenced to death in 1991, started a campaign for his release. Thanks to her efforts and that of the Indian government, Sarabjit's execution was indefinitely delayed. But he was attacked on April 26, 2013 in the Central Jail Lahore and on May 1, was declared brain dead.
The film is slated to release next year.
