Mumbai: At a time when biopics on Indian sportspersons are becoming a huge hit in Bollywood, the fans will soon get to see one more on ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu.
Actor-producer Sonu Sood is set to paint Sindhu’s life and victory on the silver screen.
Sindhu, who won a historic Silver medal at Rio Olympics last year, said she was hopeful that her biopic could inspire millions.
"Looking forward to the biopic to be made by Sonu Sood and team. Hope it inspires millions to follow their dreams," Sindhu tweeted on Monday.
Sonu too said that he is hopeful that Sindhu's journey and achievements "will inspire the world".
“It feels great to make a biopic on P.V. Sindhu. It’s a story of a girl who have inspired millions of Indians and given a message that everyone can dream big and not only dream but achieve it too by working hard.
“It’s a journey that everyone has to know and be inspired,” Sonu said in a statement here.
Sindhu, whose parents are former volleyball players, took to badminton when she was all of eight and a half years old.
Born in Hyderabad, Sindhu started playing badminton from the age of eight after she drew inspiration from Pullela Gopichand’s victory in All England Open Badminton Championship in 2001.
“I am very honoured and pleased to know that Sonu Sood has decided to make a biopic on my journey. I’m very impressed with the thorough research that the team has done on my biopic for the last eight months.
“They have written a script which I am sure will inspire millions of Indians and our youngsters to dare to dream and achieve glory for the country in spite of all the hardships and hurdles that we all face in our journey,” Sindhu, 21, said.
