Dalbir Kaur, sister of Indian national Sarabjit Singh has appreciated Omung Kumar’s directorial venture Sarbjit.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plays Dalbir in the film while Randeep Hooda essays the role of Sarabjit and Richa Chadda plays his wife.

Dalbir said that the film’s trailer depicts her life. “The trailer of the film was enough for me and my whole family to see our hurtful journey play out in front of our eyes. We all had tears in our eyes because everyone’s performance is very impactful. We could see ourselves in the characters. It was difficult to be reminded of all that had happened, but we are happy that the nation will know our story now.”

“Everyone is amazed by the posters and the trailer that is all over the news. Aishwarya, Randeep and Richa justify the characters so well and I feel it couldn’t have been any better. I am very honored that Aishwarya has essayed my character. As much I have seen on set in Punjab, it was evident that she put her heart and soul to do justice to my character. It was surprising to see a superstar like her so humble and caring,” Dalbir added.

Talking about Aishwarya, she further said, “She hugged me every time I met her with a lot of warmth and made sure I was comfortable. I am blessed to have been associated to a substantial woman like her and I did see myself in her. I thank her and love her for understanding me and my journey so well and putting it forth in front of everyone so correctly.”
