Sangram Singh has been signed on to play a sports coach by producer Dhanraj Jerhani in a film entitled Vande Mataram.
As expected in a film starring Sangram Singh, the film is sporty and carries a positive message for the young.
Says Sangram, “I play a sports coach to 16-17 year old kids. What I especially liked about my role was that I get to spread a positive message against drugs and sexual violence. I feel these are rampant problems among the young. As a responsible citizen and a role model to a certain section of people I need to use every available platform to reach out to the impressionable sections of our country.”
Sangram says he chose this project because he trusted the producers. “The same people earlier produced The Ankur Arora Murder Case which focused on another social evil, namely medical malpractice. Vande Mataram is about the need for the young to remain healthy, drugs-free and to desist from sexual violence.”
The title Vande Mataram is tentative. “We’re trying to get that title. Otherwise we’ll call the film Yuva. I know it was the title of a Mani Ratnam film five years ago. But now we can get it.”
