Will Deepika Padukone Play P V Sindhu? Sonu Sood To Produce Biopic On The Badminton Ace
Actor Sonu Sood is fast setting up a big film as a producer, and it is a biopic on India's ace badminton player, P V Sindhu.

There are whispers that Deepika Padukone might get into P V Sindhu's shoes.

And clearly, P V Sindhu has given the green signal to Sonu to make a film on her life.

When contacted, Sonu confirmed about the P V Sindhu biopic.

Is Deepika Padukone playing P V Sindhu, we asked? "We haven't locked yet on who will get into P V Sindhu's shoes. In all probability, the heroine and the director will be finalised and announced around the same time," Sonu said rather diplomatically.

Sonu has earlier produced Tutak Tutak Tutiya (his caller tune is still that!) and distributed Kung Fu in India. "Producing films gives me creative satisfaction. I enjoy it tremendously," Sonu added.

21-year old Pusarla Venkata Sindhu 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. She is one of the two Indian badminton players to ever win an Olympic medal– other being Saina Nehwal.

Incidentally, Amole Gupte announced a biopic on Saina only a few days ago. Buzz there too was, Deepika might essay the title role- but it was Shraddha Kapoor who finally clinched it.
