The Bollywood industry has seen a number of biopics lately, with both the Sachin and Dhoni films garnering massive support and fans from across the country. Sonu Sood has caught hold of the trend and wants to use PV Sindhu‘s story as a role model to women and sports enthusiasts as the main theme of his film.
Sonu was asked who would be perfectly suited for the role and replied, “I would love to see Deepika playing the character of Sindhu in my film. She is a fine actress. We are still in scripting stage. If the part is offered to her and she likes the script and director, and has the time for it, she will surely give her nod.
As a coincidence, Deepika is also an ace badminton player who has played at the national level. Sonu is confident Deepika will accept the role once the script and direction for the film has been put in place. Sonu is now looking for good locations to film the biopic, he currently has his eyes set on a cycle path in Dubai, with other scenes to be shot in China and South Korea. PV Sindhu herself will make a special cameo appearance, adding an interesting element of surprise to unsuspecting viewers.
Sonu Sood is also currently in the works of a Saina Nehwal biopic, which he says although tied to PV Sindhu’s story by the bond of badminton, have a ‘life and journey towards glory’ that are ‘completely different’.
