After Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Yash Raj’s next film lined up for release would be Chak De India. The film has already attracted lot of attention as it stars Shah Rukh Khan in the role of a hockey coach, something which he has never attempted before. The film will also introduce some new girls who are a part of the girls’ hockey team which Shah Rukh coaches.

Yash Raj Films generally keep their film plots under wraps. Similar is the case with Chak De India since the storyline of the film is not being disclosed yet. However, the latest buzz is that the film is based on the life of an Indian hockey player Mir Ranjan Negi.

Negi was the hockey goalkeeper of the Indian team during the Asian Games 1982. During the Asian games, India faced a defeat with the score of 1-7 against Pakistan. This was a humiliating experience for Negi. Later in his life, Negi coached the National Women’s hockey team and the team went on to win Gold at the Manchester Commonwealth games. Chak De India is said to have a similar storyline and SRK seems to be portraying Negi’s character in the film. Interestingly, Shah Rukh sports slight stubble in the film which resembles Negi’s look.

Mir Ranjan Negi however remains tightlipped about the film and does not let out details but confirms that the film is based on his life. In fact, it is said that Negi had also accompanied Chak De India unit to Australia to guide them on the hockey field during the shoot. Shah Rukh, a college level hockey player himself, also didn’t take long to pick up the game.

Chak De India is directed by Shimit Amin whose last film was Ab Tak Chhappan. The film stars Shah Rukh Khan and Vidya Malvade along with a group of debutante girls who are part of the hockey team. The first promotional music video of the film will be released during the screening of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom.
