Omung Kumar planning big for his next


A biopic based on Sarabjit Singh has been in the news ever since it was announced. Earlier, the film was to be directed by Hansal Mehta and Kangana Ranaut was supposed to play Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur.

But, later the ‘Mary Kom’ director Omung Kumar was stepped into Hensal Mehta’s shoes and Aishwarya Rai was finalized to play Sarabjit’s sister role. As per the latest reports, the film’s director is currently in talks with Irrfan Khan and Randeep Hooda for the role of Sarabjit.

However, it seems Omung Kumar is leaving no stone unturned to make this film a blockbuster. This biopic is based on the life of Sarabjit Singh, an Indian farmer, who lost his way and ended up in Pakistan, only to be called a spy and being jailed till he finally was found dead.
