Numerous soldiers smilingly sacrifice their lives to the keep sovereignty of the nation intact. Glorious tributes are paid to some, whereas others, who, while rendering their exceptional service to the nation, attained martyrdom get lost in anonymity. One brave soul who immortalized himself by fighting three major wars for our nation is Subedar Joginder Singh. He served the British Indian Army pre-independence and later in the Indian Army. He fought for the independence of the nation, he fought to keep that independence intact and before achieving martyrdom he fought for the honor of motherland India, in 1962 during the Sino-Indian war- which India never expected owing to the long friendly ties between the 2 nations.
But we seldom see films being made on such heroes. But now we will witness a biopic on this unsung hero and celebrated officer Subedar Joginder Singh, who was commanding a platoon of soldiers, who were instructed to take positions in the adversities of NEFA without any proper reinforcements. Soon after taking their positions, they faced lethal and unanticipated attacks by thousands of Chinese soldiers in three waves, who astonishingly attacked from Aksai Chin in Ladakh to Indo-Myanmar border in NEFA. It was due to the sheer mental strength that despite the exhausting ammunition and being hit by bullet on thigh, Subedar Joginder Singh kept motivating his soldiers against all odds, along with that he single handedly killed dozens of Chinese soldiers with Bayonets. For such exemplary and unprecedented display of valor, Indian Government honored him with the country’s highest wartime gallantry award – Param Vir Chakra posthumously.
The biopic of this brave war hero, which is a subject of national importance, happens to be the first ever film on a Param Vir Chakra recipient. Seven Colors Motion Pictures has taken the film under its wings as they have produced the film.
SUBEDAR JOGINDER SINGH has been shot in the extreme weather conditions of Kargil & Dras, Rajasthan and Assam. Major part of film has been shot at a height of 14000 feet; the terrain is so insurmountable that it took the cast and crew hours of car drive and strenuous vertical trek to reach actual shoot location.
Recently, the makers released the first look of a Punjabi singer named Rajvir Jawanda; who, after impressing the audiences with his stunning looks and melodious voice, is now set to leave behind his footprints in the field of acting as well. He is playing the role of a Sepoy named Bahadur Singh in the film, and we must admit that he seems to have got into the skin of a soldier to nail that perfect look which has been released.
The actor has expressed immense happiness and excitement about being a part of this film, which is a highly anticipated one. When asked about his experience, the actor said, “SUBEDAR JOGINDER SINGH is a very special film. I am extremely grateful to Sumeet Ji for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I always aspired to be an actor, and didn’t know that my very first break would be of this grand scale.”
Directed by Simerjit Singh, written by Rashid Rangrez, produced by Sumeet Singh, the film is all set to release on 6th April 2018 worldwide in four languages Punjabi, Hindi, Telugu and Tamil.
