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."
