Telugu Girl PV Sindhu wrote history when she defeated Japan's Nozomi Okuhara to become the first Indian to win gold at the BWF (Badminton World Federation) World Championships on Sunday.
Soon after PV Sindhu’s amazing victory, rumors started doing the rounds that a biopic on her is in the works. Some even reported that, Akshay Kumar is in talks to play Sindhu’s coach Pullela Gopichand.
Commenting on this, Pullela Gopichand said, "Well, I love Akshay Kumar. If he is doing it, it's fantastic, because he is one of the people I really admire. But I am not sure about it." He also said that Akshay has met Sindhu and encouraged her on several occasions.
As everyone knows, Pullela Gopichand is the chief national coach for the Indian badminton team. The former All-England champion is the recipient of several honors, including the Arjuna Award in 1999, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna in 2001, the Dronacharya Award in 2009 and the Padma Bhushan (India's third-highest civilian award) in 2014.
It is also known that, Telugu director Praveen Sattaru is planning to make Pullela Gopichand biopic with Sudheer Babu portraying the Badminton legend.
