CHAK DE INDIA directed by Shimit Amin starring Shahrukh Khan and 16 other girls has hockey as its backdrop. All of them have been trained by professional coaches but the fact that King Khan has been a great hockey player (in his college days), will definitely work as an added advantage. The buzz is that Aditya and Shimit have roped in some real life hockey players and some models also. Aditya will also have a hockey coach and a physiotherapist throughout the making of the film.
Shahrukh plays a hockey coach and is sporting a cool bearded look in the film. The girls are being put through a rigorous exercise regime and all their activities are being shot to be later telecasted in a reality show format. The script is written by Jaideep Sahni who has written for films like BUNTY AUR BABLI earlier.
