Among these, sports biopics seems to be catching the fancy of the country in a big way. Films like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Dangal and Mary Kom have set really high benchmarks in this genre for its
successors. It seems these upcoming sports biopics will certainly push the envelope. Let’s have a look, shall we!
Abhinav Bindra Biopic
Harshvardhan Kapoor will be playing Abhinav Bindra in the latter’s biopic. The film is supposedly based on Bindra’s autobiography, A Shot at History: My Obsessive Journey to Olympic Gold’. Kannan Iyer will direct the film. The film will probably release late in 2018. Well, the shooting is on its way!
Saina Nehwal Biopic
Saina Nehwal will be played by Shraddha Kapoor in the ace shuttler’s biopic. Shraddha is training rigorously for the role. This will be one smash of a watch without doubts.
Biopic on Dhyan Chand
The greatest field hockey player India has ever produced, Dhyan Chand’s life is going to be captured on celluloid. The film is supposed to be produced by Karan Johar with Varun Dhawan playing the lead. This one scores real high on expectation.
P.T. Usha Biopic
Priyanka Chopra may be seen in the role of athlete P.T.Usha. It will be made with a budget of a whopping 100 crore! PT Usha, nicknamed the Payoli Express is a story of overcoming great hurdles. We would await this movie to run at a theatre near you.
Biopic on Murlikant Petkar
Murlikant Petkar won a Paralympic Gold medallist in 1972, set a world record in the 50m freestyle swimming and participated in the javelin, precision javelin throw and slalom events. With supposedly Sushant Singh Rajput playing this Paralympic gold medallist, the movie promises to be an insightful watch.
