The film is expected to collect a total of Rs 21 crore in its first week. The second seems to be crucial for the film as it faces stiff competition from Ant Man and the Wasp and Sanju, both of which have taken the Indian box office by storm.
Dosanjh, who made his Bollywood debut with Abhishek Chaubey's 2016 drug movie Udta Punjab, is being praised for his portrayal of Singh. The film chronicles the former Indian hockey team's captain's rise to fame, the unfortunate accident which paralysed him from waist below and forced him out of the sport only to make him more resolute in his fight to get back on his feet.
Soorma has been co-produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Chitrangda Singh and Deepak Singh.
The trailer of Atrangi Re will release tomorrow, 24 November
