Sonu Sood, the actor-turned-director is now all set to make his second production, which is a biopic on badminton player P.V.Sindhu. He says it is very challenging to produce a biopic of a 22-year-old. “Sometimes in a story there is a climax, a pre-climax and a story behind it. So sometimes you just focus on a climax and then build a story. But for me, its not the climax but the story, the journey which inspired me to make this film. And we are taking notes from people who all thought that biopic on a 21 or 22-year-old is not the right time. I think it’s more challenging for us to prove them wrong, that the film will be something that will inspire people,” Sonu was found saying while he was at the unveiling at a magazine on Wednesday.
About the film he said, “Badminton is just the canvas of the film but the story is about the girl from a small town and how did she achieve her goals,” adding that the story is going to inspire people and they’ll love it.
The actor also happens to be one of the fittest in the industry. He says, “I think fitness and doing gym should be like brushing teeth everyday in the morning as it should come automatically without any excuse.”
Sonu, who last worked in an action-adventure comedy film Kung Fu Yoga, opposite superstar Jackie Chan, expressed his thoughts about working with him. He said, “Working with Jackie Chan was one of the most phenomenal experiences, I won’t say that he is the most grounded actor but he is the most grounded human being i have ever seen.”
Sonu had also worked with late Vinod Khanna. The two were seen in the film ‘Dabangg’ and he feels blessed for the same. “I was blessed to work with Vinodji. We had spent many days together, I always used to feel that he has achieved so much and yet he had that hunger to give his best,” he said and added, “I would say he was the true superstar industry was blessed with.”
Sonu Sood will next be doing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next period drama ‘Padmavati’, which will also star Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
