Perhaps Gopichand has made more news than the players in the field who have won the medals for India. Non other than PM Modi lauded the efforts of Gopi on radio and opined that he was a great teacher.
Taking this forward Praveen Sattaru is making the life of India Badminton Coach and the man behind Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu winning medals at Olympics- Pullela Gopichand. It is yet not known whether Praveen will include Sindhu’s portions or not. In fact, it is better to make another film on PV Sindhu.
Movies are in the making for Saina Nehwal and also Sania Mirza the players who have done India proud several times. After the Bhag Milka Bhag made on Milka Singh by Bollywood people now every one is looking at the stories of the sports legends. The Milka story was a run away success. Farkah Akhter who acted as Milka got all the awards and got recognition world wide.
Interestingly, when debate is happening about biopics of PV Sindhu and Sakshi Malik, who have earned medals at the Rio Olympics, Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor proclaimed that, the inspirational story of PT Usha should be brought on the big screen first.
It may be mentioned here that, PT Usha was an Indian track and field athlete. She is regarded as one of the greatest athletes India has ever produced and is often called the “queen of Indian track and field”.
