Dalbir Kaur, sister of Late Sarbjit Singh, feels the film has done full justice to her brother.
Directed by Omung Kumar, “Sarbjit” is based on the real life story of Sarabjit Singh, who was convicted by Pakistani courts for spying and terrorism. He languished in a Pakistani jail for 23 years starting 1990, while his sister Dalbir Kaur, tried vigorously to get him released.In the film, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plays the role of Sarabjit's sister Dalbir Kaur, Randeep Hooda is seen playing the titular role and Richa Chadda plays Sarbjit's wife."The film is the result of everybody's labour. It can't be an individual's effort. Every department has put an effort. The script of 'Sarbjit' was brilliant and all of the actors in the film have given their soul in it. We had a huge responsibility," she told reporters here during the promotion of the film.

Though the film has opened to mixed response from critics but for the 42-year-old actress, getting a thumbs up from Sarabjit's family was most important. "The most important impression for us was when Dalbir held Randeep's (Hooda) hand and said 'we have given full justice to her brother through this film'." The former Miss World said it was a conscious effort to not to meet Dalbir before starting the film."Her character was nicely accounted in the media, so I had enough material on her. Omung (director) and I had loads of discussion on Dalbir's character and mannerism. I always wanted to meet her but not in the perspective of observing her. I wanted to meet her personally."
