Katrina Kaif's Biggest Challenge In Life- To Tan Herself To Fit Into P T Usha's Shoes? Priyanka Chopra Out Of The Race?
Heard this? Rumour has it that Katrina Kaif has been asked to play P T Usha in the legendary athlete's biopic. Priyanka Chopra was offered the role, but now we hear it has been offered to Katrina. Is this a 2-horse race now, or has Priyanka bowed out?

We do not know yet if Revathy S Varmha the filmmaker who is planning to make that biopic has asked Katrina to tan herself or will use prosthetics to accomplish the same, or like Bhansali did with Priyanka Chopra in the Mary Kom biopic- just go with the actress, without changing her external appearance much. Interestingly, Priyanka was in contention to play the titular role. What made the offer land at Katrina's doorstep is still not known. Or, are both running the race?

Remains to be seen if Katrina accepts this role which should anyway be a challenging landmark in her career. Kat was last seen in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Zero and is now gearing up for the promotional campaigns on Salman Khan's upcoming film Bharat.
Sports biopics have done well- Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013), Mary Kom (2014), Dangal(2016), and MS Dhoni: The Untold Story are cases in point. There is no reason why the one on P T Usha---called the 'Queen of Indian track and field'- should not, considering her popularity. “Yes, I have given permission for a biopic on me,” Usha had confirmed with a leading daily, sometime ago.
Varmha has seven South movies and more than 450 ad films to her credit. Varmha has also said the movie will be called PT Usha and set to tunes by AR Rahman. The biopic on P T Usha will be her first Hindi film. Sajish Sargam, who works as a cardiologist, has been asked to pen the screenplay. The movie is likely to be made in English, followed by a dubbed version to release simultaneously in four other languages- Hindi, Malayalam, Chinese and Russian.
