In the trend of making biopics, we are soon going to witness the unknown story of former Indian badminton player and the current badminton coach Pullela Gopichand. Sudheer Babu will reprise the role of Gopichand in this film. Praveen Sattaru will helm this multilingual project.
The film will showcase the early days of Gopichand and how he went on to become a champion badminton player. Gopichand's mother Subbaravamma played a major role in shaping up his dreams. She is the main pillar of strength for him. Thus, a strong actor needs to play the role of her.
Thus, the makers are planning to signup Amala Akkineni for this character. They feel that Amala's stature s very natural and she can fit into any kind of role with ease. Her inclusion will also be an advantage for the film to grab many eyeballs. Currently, the talks are going on with the actress and she is yet to sign the dotted lines.
Amala is currently shooting for Sharwanand
's untitled Tamil-Telugu bilingual project. The shoot of Gopichand biopic will go on floors early next year. Follow this space for more updates on this exciting project.
