‘We have to en­sure no one gets hurt’

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.”
