Biopics in Bollywood have been widely received by the audience and it is also well established by the box office business of these films. But obviously this trend is here to stay. Sanju has released last month and is on a record making and breaking spree. As many as six more biopics are awaited, viz, Soorma, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Salute, ’83, Vikram Batra biopic and Saina Nehwal biopic. Another one that was said to be in the making is a biopic on the life of cricketer Mithali Raj. Well here comes a confirmation from Mithali herself.
In an interview with TOI, the captain of India’s women cricket team, Mithali, confirmed the news that a biopic on her life is indeed in the making. She also went on to name of the actress whom she would like to see playing her role. “I think Priyanka Chopra will be a great choice (for my biopic),” the report quoted Mithali.
“Our personalities match a lot. However, I am not a movie buff, so I would love the experts to do their job,” Mithali added. Priyanka has already acted in a biopic on the ace boxer Mary Kom. So if things fall in place, this will be a second for her. The shoot for Mithali Raj’s biopic is expected to begin in early 2019. Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra is gearing up for Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, which also stars Salman Khan and Disha Patani.
