Mahesh Babu’s Brother-in-Law Sudheer Babu condemns the reports of Superstar playing the lead in the biopic of Badminton champion Pullela Gopichand. “Mahesh doing as Pullela isn’t true,” he shares.
However, The good news for all the sports lovers is that Sudheer Babu didn’t deny that a feature film based on Pullela Gopichand’s life is currently in the pre-production stage. The ‘Prema Katha Chitram’ star wishes to reprise the role of Gopi in the movie. As of now, Director Praveen Sattaru of LBW and Chandamama Kathalu fame is busy researching for the biopic.
Notably, Sudheer Babu is a trained Badminton player and he was even chosen as one of the probables for Junior World Cup. He also got trained under India’s greatest badminton player and Padma Shri awardee Prakash Padukone (Bolly Actress Deepika’s Father). He even played along side Pullela Gopichand at one stage. So, Sudheer is the right choice to play onscreen Gopichand as he was the one who watched the badminton great from very close quarters and being a player himself will help him get every nuances right.
