Sarbjit (Sarabjit Biopic) is the story of Sarabjit Singh who was a farmer from Bhikhiwind in Punjab, who in 1990 while farming was caught on an unmarked Indo-Pakistani border area in Pakistan and arrested by the Pakistan Rangers near Kasur.
He claimed that the arrest was a case of mistaken identity and that he was only a poor farmer who was drunk and had strayed over the border and and was mistaken to be an Indian spy, had spent 23 years in Pakistan’s jail until his death in captivity.
During his 23 years in jail, his sister Dalbir Kaur, who treated him more like her son than her brother, got to meet him only thrice in jail and made it her life’s agenda to get him released.
The film has a very powerful storyline and a very impressive cast too. Randeep-Aishwarya as on-screen brother and sister are expected to bring never-seen-before tale on the platter.
