Ace shuttler Pusarla Venkata Sindhu, became the first Indian woman to win a silver medal, by bagging one at the Rio Olympics last year. She is the latest sportsperson whose life will be portrayed on the big screen. While Sonu Sood is producing the film, the name of the actor who will reprise the young athlete on screen is still under wraps. However, Sonu is sure that he wants Sindhu to play a cameo in the film.
“I really want Sindhu to be a part of the film, just may be a special appearance. It is still in the scripting stages; hopefully, I should be soon ready with the final draft. I will try to see where I can incorporate her appearance. This will make the film even more special and that is what my efforts are for,” says Sonu.
Our source reveals that the film will be shot in a lot of real locations as opposed to sets. “Sindhu, who was born in Hyderabad, started playing badminton at the age of eight after she saw Pullela Gopichand win the 2001 All England Open Badminton Championships. While it is extremely challenging to produce a biopic on the 22-year-old athlete, Sonu is excited. He knows that he will have to be thorough with his research - and he has been doing a lot of it since the past year - because a lot of people will expect the biopic to be inspirational. Recently, Sonu and Sindhu also met at a studio to discuss the progress of the script.”
