Diljit Dosanjh’s next film ‘Rangroot’ is based on the sacrifices of Sikh soldiers in World War 1, a chapter of history that is not often recalled. The tremendous visual effects and cinematography is being praised of the trailer. ‘Rangroot’ would be the first big budget Punjabi film based on an historical event.

British officers praised the fearlessness of the Sikhs: 

“Finally, we that live on can never forget those comrades who in giving their lives gave so much that is good to the story of the Sikh Regiment. No living glory can transcend that of their supreme sacrifice, may they rest in peace. In the last two world wars 83,005 turban wearing Sikh soldiers were killed and 109,045 were wounded. They all died or were wounded for the freedom of Britain and the world and during shell fire, with no other protection but the turban, the symbol of their faith.”
