    This is the remarkable story of Rustam-e-Hind Dara Singh, a man who epitomized unbridled masculinity, superhuman strength and incredible grit. He was the first Indian wrestler to fight the toughest in the world — King Kong, Ray Golden, Lou Thesz and Ray Apollon — and emerge as the invincible world champion.

    But this is also the story about a young Sikh boy called Deedara, who was pulled out of school to work in his father’s farm; who was coerced into a teenage marriage; who did petty jobs in Singapore; and finally strode like a lion into wrestling arenas across the world.

    As one of the first stars of Hindi stunt films, Dara Singh mesmerized his audiences with his rugged looks. And in 1986, while essaying the role of Hanuman in the iconic TV series Ramayan, he was deified by the entire nation. Deedara aka Dara Singh! is a fascinating account of an extraordinary man, who started his life in the most ordinary way, but became an icon for an entire generation.
