Mumbai: Known for making intense social dramas, filmmaker Sudhir Mishra is now planning to make a sports-based film and says he would focus on the casting couch in sports.
"I am making a sports based film in February. But I can't reveal the subject of the film," said Mishra, who is currently shooting for "Aur Devdas", in a group interview.
The "Dharavi" and "Chameli" fame director added: "I will be talking about corruption in sports and the pressure on female athletes.
"We talk about casting couch in the film industry, but we don't talk about the casting couch over there (sports). I am dealing with all of that in my sports based film."
In the recent past, various types of sports based films like "Paan Singh Tomar", "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", and "Mary Kom" were presented to the audience who lapped it up.
However, Mishra finds that sports based films are not yet in focus in the country.
"Sports have its own platform and films have its own. There are hardly any sports films made in India, but now things are changing."
Mishra last directed "Inkaar" and the film about sexual harassment at the work place did average business at the box office.
