After the release of his recent directorial venture
Chandamama Kathalu, filmmaker Praveen Sattaru has now gone
busy with his next Telugu movie, which is based on the life of
Indian badminton champion Pullela Gopichand. The director, who
has roped in Sudheer Babu for the lead role in the movie, says that
young actor is a professional badminton player and he will be a
perfect match for the role of Gopichand.
Praveen Sattaru is currently working on the script of this
untitled movie and he is hoping to start its production soon. The
director says, "I'm busy with the film's script and as soon as I
complete it, we plan to go on floors. I chose Sudheer because he's
a professional badminton player, who trained under Gopi for four
years. I thought it would be apt to cast him because he can do
justice to the character."
The biopic on Pullela Gopichand is going to be a multilingual
movie, which will be simultaneously made in Hindi and English. The
director is yet to finalise other cast and crew members. Praveen
Sattaru added, "I haven't decided on the cast yet, but if
everything works out we might make it in Hindi as well as English.
Sudheer is very excited to be part of the project."
