Amitabh Bachchan calls ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ a true biopic

Director Tigmanshu Dhulia and actor Irrfan Khan have received heaps of praise from Amitabh Bachchan for their film Paan Singh Tomar. The megastar describes the movie as inspiring and fitting tribute to unsung heroes

“A fulfilling day! Saw an inspiring film, Paan Singh Tomar directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia and enacted by a whole cast of fresh and very talented players, led by that incredible performer Irrfan. Such restraint in direction and performance, but such an impression on the nature of the subject. A biopic true to life and detail,” the 69- year-old posted on his blog bigb.bigadda.com. “…this is a true story, of a man from Madhya Pradesh…The tribute to the unsung hero, lists various prominent sportsmen who brought glory on international platforms for the country, but died penniless. Some even having to sell off their gold medal to survive. Such a moving tale,” he added.

Amitabh Bachchan, is currently recuperating at home from his abdominal surgeries. “A wonderful tribute to the many unsung sports heroes of the nation, who contribute so much for the Motherland both within and and on International platforms, yet are left in penury to pass away, unnoticed, uncared for,” Big B said. He also requested the government to support sports persons. “…the first thought that comes to mind is to lend support to those that find themselves in such condition. To plead with the system to show some compassion and respect for the glory they brought for us, so we could stick our chests out in pride and look after them in their hour of need instead of leaving them in dire straits to perish without any honour,” he wrote. Paan Singh Tomar tells the tale of the former national steeplechase champion-turned-bandit. Released Friday, the film features Irrfan in the title role.
