Its reigning biopics in Bollywood. After the biopic on Saina Nehwal and PV Sidhu, a biopic on the life of Pullela Gopichand was announced on his birthday. We even gave you details about it.
While the casting for the same hasn't happened yet, a report in Midday suggests that Prabhas and Sudheer Babu are the top contenders for the role.
Prabhas who last gave us the blockbuster Baahubali is currently shooting for Saaho. If everything for well, the actor will then take a call on this project. At the same time the other competitors Sudharr babu who made her Bollywood debut in Baaghi, seems to be more apt for the role as the actor is a former badminton player. His skills also got him the first rank in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. And if that was not all, the actor has played alongside the badminton coach himself.
The film which is slated to roll out in 2018 is yet to finalise yet to finalise the lead.
Talking about Prabhas, the poster of Saaho was released recently and it received a thumbs up from the audience.
The film is directed by Sujeeth and apart from the Baahubali star it also features Shraddha Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Chunkey Pandey.
Shraddha Kapoor will be starring a trilingual for the first time. The actress recently shared with her fans that she had wrapped up the Hyderabad schedule of the film.
The audience has high expectations from Saaho. Baahubali has broken all records and they are expecting the same with Prabhas' next.
Coming back to the casting of the lead, whether makers will select the Baahubali star or will they pick Sudheer Babu who has a badminton background, only time will tell.
