Sonu Sood Confirms A Biopic On PV Sindhu
Reportedly, the biopic would be produced by actor Sonu Sood who earlier produced Tutak Tutak Tutiya and distributed the Jackie Chan starrer Kung Fu Yoga in India.
Will Deepika Take The Bait?
When Sonu was asked if Deepika is stepping into Sindhu's shoes he replied, "We haven't locked yet on who will get into P V Sindhu's shoes. In all probability, the heroine and the director will be finalised and announced around the same time."
Who Is PV Sindhu?
PV Sindhu is currently World No.3 in the BWF World Ranking. She became the first Indian woman to win an Olympic silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics. She is one of the two Indian badminton players to ever win an Olympic medal- other being Saina Nehwal.
Considering that Deepika herself is a badminton player in real life too, it would be quite interesting to watch her play the shuttlecock on the reel.
Which of the two biopics are you looking foward to more- the one on Saina Nehwal or PV Sindhu?
