‘We have to ensure no one gets hurt’
Actor-singer Gippy Grewal, who will portray the role of Subedar Joginder Singh in the martyr’s biopic, says it is a “big responsibility” to play a national hero on screen. “I feel it is a challenge to do anything, but if a personality like this needs to be portrayed, then it becomes really big,” he says.
Gippy says one has to do a lot of homework to portray someone on screen.“One has to go into a lot of details because our motive of making such biopics is to bring these people alive on the silver screen in front of the audience. People don’t know much about Subedar Joginder Singh. He is a Param Vir Chakra winner and did so much. But there are so many other things that need to be shared. So, we want to show that in the film,” he says. Singh had fought against the Chinese soldiers in the 1962 war and his story of bravery will be shown in the Punjabi film. “It’s a big responsibility as we have to ensure no one gets hurt and we make it properly. So we have to keep everything in mind.”
