Biopics have been the flavour of the season. With many biopics churning out, their uncomplicated engagement with the audience has certainly boosted the trend. The recent release of Taapsee Pannu and Diljit Dosanjh's Soorma which is based on the life of former Indian Captain and hockey player Sandeep Singh is all set to return with a sequel.

Confirming the news, Sandeep Singh said to a leading tabloid that he is in talks with different production houses to roll out the sequel.

"I have been getting a lot of messages from fans, who enjoyed watching my life's journey on screen, to take it forward with a sequel. Work has started on the project but right now, we are unsure if the original team will return for the second film, which will start where the first part ended. It will also feature flashbacks from my story that were shown in part one," Singh said.

He added that he has been brainstorming with his brother Bikramjeet and his cousins to carry forward the sequel. They had played an important role in contributing their efforts to the prequel as well.

Soorma was helmed by Shaad Ali and was filmed in Sandeep Singh's hometown located in Shahabad in Haryana. On being asked about whether or not Diljit Dosanjh would play the title role again in the sequel, Sandeep Singh said, "It's too early to say for now, but we will know soon."

Well, whether or not Soorma sequel will capture the essence of the original only time can tell.
