Sonu Sood to Make a Biopic on Badminton PV Sindhu



Pusarla Venkata Sindhu {born 5 July 1995} is an Indian professional badminton player, who is currently world no 3 in the BWF World Ranking. At the 2016 Summer Olympics, she became the first Indian woman to win an Olympic silver medal.

Actor-producer Sonu Sood is set to make a biopic on P.V. Sindhu, and the ace shuttler hopes that it inspires millions to follow their dreams.

“Looking forward to the biopic to be made by Sonu Sood and team. Hope it inspires millions to follow their dreams,” Sindhu tweeted on Monday.

Sonu is hopeful that her journey and achievements “will inspire the world”.

The actor-producer got his team to research Sindhu’s life and put together a script before he met her to discuss the movie. Earlier this year, the two also met at the Times Of India Sports Awards (TOISA), where Sindhu won the Sportsperson Of The Year award. When asked why he decided to make this film, Sonu told BT, “When Sindhu won the Olympic medal, I thought of making a biopic on her and started researching. Reading about her journey  she would travel 50 kms daily to the badminton camp from her home to practise I was motivated to make this film.”

When asked about who will play Sindhu on screen and who will helm the biopic, Sonu maintained, “I’ve just begun talks, so it’s still too early to divulge that.” Probed if he will also be acting in the film, he said, “We’ll see that after we zero down on the final script and if the director feels I suit a role.”

On her part, Sindhu said, “I’m honoured and pleased to know that Sonu has decided to make a biopic on my life. I’m very impressed with the thorough research that his team has done for the last eight months. They have written a script, which I’m sure will inspire millions of Indians and our youth to dare to dream and achieve glory for their country, in spite of all the hardships and hurdles that we face in our journeys.”
