Here’s How Shah Rukh Khan’s Kind Gesture Convinced Karam Batth To Kick-Start The Kaur Singh Biopic
It was in the month of December 2, years back, when everyone got to know about the struggle of boxing legend Kaur Singh and his fight to pay the medical bills were highlighted. Although no one came ahead to help the known boxing face of the country until the King Khan of Bollywood  Shah Rukh Khan came forward to extend his support to the award-winning sportsman. In order to help Kaur with his medical expenses, Shah Rukh Khan donated Rs 5 lakh. This kind gesture by the superstar in no time gave Karam Batth an idea to bring Kaur’s story to the forefront and make a biopic on him, titled ‘Padma Shri Kaur Singh’, which will see Batth, as the producer as well as the protagonist.

Talking about the film, Karam said: “When I first got to know about Kaur Singh and his achievements (in December 2017), he was undergoing post-operation treatment in Mohali. His poor financial conditions and inability to meet the medical expenses came as a shock for me. The pitiable condition of the Arjuna awardee also moved the Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan so much so that he gave him an amount of Rs 5 lakh through his team Kolkata Knight Riders.” Also Read: Aaradhya Bachchan Birthday Party: Karan Johar With Kids, Shah Rukh Khan And Gauri Khan With AbRam - Stars And Their Kids Arrive In Style

“After listening to the news, I was sure about my decision of choosing this story for my film. I was confident that people deserve to know about the struggles and life of this legend,” added Batth.

Karam Batth and Slay Records' project titled 'Padma Shri Kaur Singh' has been shot in various parts of Punjab. The film, which is directed by Vikram Pradhan will hit the theatres in early 2020.
