Sonu Sood is gearing up to make a biopic on the young badminton sensation, Pusaria Venkata Sindhu aka PV Sindhu – India’s first woman to win the silver medal at the Olympics last year.
The actor-producer is keen on producing a biopic on the athlete titled Sindhu and got his team to research Sindhu's life and put together a script before he met her to discuss the movie.
Now, it’s learnt that the talented actor wants Sindhu to play a cameo in the film. Sonu informs, “I really want Sindhu to be a part of the film, just may be a special appearance. It is still in the scripting stages; hopefully, I should be soon ready with the final draft. I will try to see where I can incorporate her appearance. This will make the film even more special and that is what my efforts are for.”
According to sources, the biopic will be shot in a lot of real locations as opposed to sets. “Sindhu, who was born in Hyderabad, started playing badminton at the age of eight after she saw Pullela Gopichand win the 2001 All England Open Badminton Championships.
While it is extremely challenging to produce a biopic on the 22-year-old athlete, Sonu is excited and will leave no stone unturned to make it inspiring and entertaining. He knows that he will have to be thorough with his research – and he has been doing a lot of it since the past year. Recently, Sonu and Sindhu also met at a studio to discuss the progress of the script.
