Actor Sudheer Babu, seen in films such as “Baaghi” and “Shamanthakamani”, is excited about being part of the yet-untitled Telugu-Hindi biopic on Badminton champion Pullela Gopichand.
To be directed by Praveen Sattaru, the project will roll from October.
“I’m kicked about the film. I’m confident I can do justice to the role because I’m a trained Badminton player. I have been playing for many years and I understand the sensibilities of the character better than anyone,” Sudheer said.
The project will be bankrolled by Vikram Malhotra, who is currently producing Saif Ali Khan starrer “Chef”.
