The trend of biopics seems to have no end anytime soon in Indian Cinema. Yet another sports biopic got announced the other day. It is the biographical drama of popular weightlifter Karanam Malleshwari. We hear that the makers of this film first approached Nithya Menen to play the lead role in it. But the actress declined the offer due to the reasons best known to her.
According to the sources, the producers thought that Nitya will be an apt choice for the film. They held talks with her as well. But apparently, she rejected the offer. The reason for her rejection is yet to be out. We also heard that the makers wanted to release the first look poster with Nitya on it. But as she declined to do the film, they had to just make an announcement. The biopic of Karanam Malleshwari will get directed by Sanjana Reddy, who earlier made the film Rajugadu. Kona Venkat and MVV Satyanarayana are jointly producing the film under their respective banners Kona Film Corporation and MVV Cinemas. More details of this film's cast and crew will get announced soon.
Meanwhile, Nitya was last seen in the Tamil film Psycho. Directed by Myskkin, this film had hit the screens earlier this year. Udayanidhi Stalin and Aditi Rao Hydari played the other lead roles in it. Nitya has signed a Telugu film which will get directed by Vishvak Khanderao. The shoot of this movie will go on the floors soon.
