Actress Kangana Ranaut seems to be on a biopic spree this year. The 30-year-old actress, who is currently prepping for Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, will feature in Arunima Sinha’s (first woman amputee to climb the Mount Everest) biopic, say reports.
The makers were to decide between Kriti Sanon and Kangana Ranaut. Since the latter’s schedule looked packed because she’s shooting for Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, they were skeptical. But, Arunima took the final call on the lead,” Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying. Arunima Sinha is a national level volleyball player, who was pushed from a running train, in 2011. As a result, one of her legs had to be amputated below the knee.
The insider also revealed, “The biopic on Arunima will be shot in a straight 60-day schedule. Kangana is currently shooting for the Rani Laxmibai biopic in Jaipur. Once the schedule ends in December, she will sign on the dotted line. The director will be finalized in a month.”
Earlier the reports revealed that Farhan Akhtar was supposed to make a film on Arunima Sinha. “Farhan had come to meet me at my place here on May 18 and proposed to make a film on my life highlighting my struggle. I have accepted the offer. Farhan said he wanted to make the film on her so that people could know about my struggle and get motivated just like his movie ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ through which life of a great athlete was presented before the world.”
