Biopic on one of India's greatest Tennis stars Vijay Amritraj announced!
Cinestaan Film Company has entered into a contract with Tennis star Vijay Amritraj to make a biopic on him.
It seems Bollywood is not going to leave its fascination for biopics anytime soon. In the last couple of years, it has churned out one successful biopic after the other. Many biopics based on some high-profile personalities are slated to arrive in cinemas in next couple of months and the cycle will keep on and on. The latest eminent personality who has been signed for a biopic is Tennis star Vijay Amritraj. Cinestaan Film Company (CFC) has acquired the rights to make a biopic on the tennis star. The title of the biopic is yet not disclosed.
Rohit Khattar, Chairman of Cinestaan Film Company, says, “Before Vijay, no Indian sportsman has been celebrated on the world stage in this manner. We all felt so proud as Indians to read about his triumphs overseas and today we, at Cinestaan Film Company are thrilled to help bring his incredibly inspiring story to the screen. Many who know of Vijay’s successes will be in awe when they see the challenges that were presented to him in early life before he achieved greatness, as we were when we heard it first hand from him.”
Vijay Amritraj says, “Parents’ love, compassion, dedication and hard work, under the most trying circumstances, can make a child’s dream come true even if he or she is nowhere near good enough in anything. I am humbled that a company like Cinestaan Film Company would want to tell my story, but this is about mothers, children and overwhelming love.”
His son Prakash Amritraj, who will be producing the film with Cinestaan says, “I've always felt beyond blessed to have my greatest hero and my father be the same person. While the world knows of his numerous achievements, my brother Vikram and I have always felt if everyone was to know his character and the love that made him; the world could truly be a better place and more seeds of love, inspiration, and hope will be sewn. I can't be more excited to bring this story to the big screen with my tremendously passionate partner in Cinestaan Film Company.”
Other details about the project will be announced soon.
