Deepak Singh, who was the key producer in “Soorma”, is now ready to present yet another sports biopic, but this time its boxing.
Deepak Singh is presenting the Hollywood film “Tiger”. A Boxing Drama, inspired by the true story of Pardeep Singh Nagra, a practicing Sikh man who was banned from the sport of boxing due to his religious beliefs.
An official selection of the upcoming Austin Film Festival, San Diego Film Festival, and New Orleans Film Festival, TIGER will hit the Indian Screens soon.
Tiger is inspired by the true story of Pardeep Singh Nagra, a practicing Sikh man who was banned from the sport of boxing due to his religious beliefs. Tiger follows Pardeep’s journey as he, with the support of his coach and mentor (Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke), does what any strong American would do, fight back! The backlash is a result of racial profiling, stereotypical threats, and the daily pressure to change, even from his loved ones who are caught in the midst of the cross fire. It is within the course of these challenges, and at his weakest moment, that he discovers love (Janel Parrish of ‘Pretty Little Liars’). Consequently, his legacy will be forever tied to his two biggest battles; one in the courtroom, the other in the ring.
The character of Pardeep Singh Nagra is being played by Prem Singh the young talent who even wrote the screen play along with Michael Pugliese.
Deepak Singh first heard the story from Rocco Pugliese who is one of the producers to the film ‘Tiger’, “People will connect to the film as it has an emotional fight of a human, a fighter, he is also a Soorma in his own perspective who fought for his rights and won the case in the Canadian judiciary.”
