One more name has been added to Actress Sonam Kapoor’s wish-list of biopics. She thinks a film should be made on Indian sprint legend P T Usha.
Speaking at the event to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of IMC’s Ladies’ Wing, Sonam said: “Recently I have done a biography but yes if something good comes on women athletes that should be made. But at first, I do believe that we need to make a biopic on P T Usha.”
The sprinter is regarded as one of the greatest athletes of India and is called the ‘queen of Indian track and field’.
When asked about women empowerment, the actress said that she wishes the government invests more into female education and becomes more supportive.
“I feel I am blessed with a lot. It’s my duty to give back in whatever way possible. I try to do that every day in my own little way,” she said.
Asked about an RD Burman biopic, Sonam said: “He is a person who has made an impact on the society and set a standard for music and it is better to make a biopic on him. The script ought to be respectful to celebrate the legend.”
Sonam will be playing one of the leads along with Kareena Kapoor Khan in Shashanka Ghosh’s Veere Di Wedding. The film which is jointly produced by Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor also stars Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. – CINEWS
