Aishwarya Rai will play Dalbir Kaur’s role in Sarbjit biopic

Sarbjit Singh has become a household name, but for a very unfortunate reason. Film maker Omung Kumar will be making a biopic on Sarbjit Singh. Since the news broke out, there have been various names that surfaced regarding the role of Dalbir Kaur’s role to be played on the silver screen.

Various names have been in the talks ever since. Some of the prominent of them are Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut. However, it is understood that finally it will be Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who will play this role.
For those who do not know, Dalbir Kaur is the elder sister of Sarbjit Singh. Sarbjit was a farmer, who came from Punjab. He mistakenly crossed the line and was found to have entered Pakistan, of course, illegally. He was accused of being a spy. He was ordered a capital punishment way back in 1991. However, he wasn’t hanged.
Soon after Afzal Guru was given capital punishment in India, Sarbjit was tortured to death in Pakistan. He spent as many as 23 years in Pakistani jail.
