The trailer of actor Kartik Aaryan’s much-anticipated sports drama, Chandu Champion, was unveiled by the makers today. Written and directed by Kabir Khan, the film is based on the life of Murlikant Petkar, a former freestyle swimmer and India’s first Paralympic gold medalist.

The trailer begins in 1967, at an Indian Army hospital in Udhampur when Kartik Aaryan wakes up from a two-year coma after being hit during the 1965 Indo-Pakistano War. We then realise that Petkar had joined the Army to realise his dream of winning an Olympic medal in boxing for India, to become a ‘Champion’ and prove his bullies wrong. Petkar goes through rigorous training and overcomes the odds to become India’s first Paralympic gold medalist.

Chandu Champion has music scored by Pritam. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under his Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment (NGE) banner, the film is set to release in theatres on June 14.
