After proving his mettle yet again and garnering critical acclaim for the biopic ‘Sarbjit’, actor Randeep Hooda is all set to play Havaldar Ishar Singh in the period action-drama, ‘Saragarhi’.

The film is based on the historic battle of Saragarhi, and would feature Randeep play a military commander of the 36th Sikhs, in the Rajkumar Santoshi film.

The actor is geared for playing this unusual role and has undergone massive training for sword-fighting and shooting with vintage rifles.

The thrilled actor tweeted the first look poster.
