‘Neerja’ Sonam Kapoor wishes a biopic to be made on P.T Usha
Actress Sonam Kapoor, who was last seen in the movie based on flight attendant Neerja Bhanot, thinks a biopic should be made on Indian track and field athlete P.T Usha.
"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,” said Sonam at the event to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of IMC's Ladies' Wing.
P.T. Usha is regarded as one of the greatest athletes of India and is called as the queen of Indian track and field. The ‘Khoobsurat’ actor feels that a biopic on the sprinter’s life would inspire many.
"We always celebrated the success of athletes, like we made Milkha Singh's biopic. I hope many runners' get inspired by that. There is such a huge population in our country.. I think there are so many talented persons whose biopics can be made," said Sonam, revealing she loves sports and played basketball and handball and was a runner too.
Speaking about women empowerment, the actress wishes that the government puts more money into female education and become 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 a R.D Burman biopic, Sonam said:
"Any person who has made an impact on the society and set a standard for music, a biopic can be made on him. The script ought to be respectful to celebrate the legend."
On professional front, Sonam Kapoor will be playing one of the leads along with Kareena Kapoor Khan in Shashanka Ghosh's chick-flick "Veere Di Wedding".
The film which is jointly produced by Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor also stars Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania.
