Bollywood has been coming up with several sports biopics and probably we are in for another one. Akshay Kumar has expressed his interest in making a film on sprinter Hima Das.
Das recently made the nation proud by winning the 400m gold at U-20 IAAF World Championships.
"I would like to make a biopic on Hima Das because she is a track runner. I think it was a very rare feat to achieve. It is really incredible for somebody who comes from interiors of India and wins gold medal in a track [running] event," said Akshay while promoting his film Gold, directed by Reema Kagti, which is based on India's first ever Olympic gold medal.
"India has been little bit weak when it comes to perform in track events and I feel we should encourage and support that form of sports so that we can show the world that we have great talent in running as we daily run to catch a bus or a train...so, I would love to make biopic on her life," he added.
