Bollywood filmmakers love making biopics. The trend has got more momentum in the past few years. There are a number of biopics, covering a diverse range of people like kings, queens, sportspersons, politicians to even actors, are lined up for release this year or the next year. With such growing numbers, it won’t be an exaggeration to say that Bollywood is on biopics making spree. The latest we hear that a biopic on Arunima Sinha is in the works. Sinha is the first Indian amputee to climb Mount Everest. Reports say that Kangana Ranaut is about to sign the biopic. Kangana might sign the next biopic after the completion of ‘Manikarnika’.
A source told a leading daily, “The makers were to decide between Kriti Sanon and Kangana Ranaut. Since the latter’s schedule looked packed because she’s shooting for Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, they were skeptical. But, Arunima took the final call on the lead.”
Earlier Farhan Akhtar was supposed to make a film on Arunima Sinha. Arunima had told a leading daily “Farhan had come to meet me at my place here on May 18 and proposed to make a film on my life highlighting my struggle. I have accepted the offer. Farhan said he wanted to make the film on her so that people could know about my struggle and get motivated just like his movie ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ through which life of a great athlete was presented before the world.”
The insider also revealed, “The biopic on Arunima will be shot in a straight 60-day schedule. Kangana is currently shooting for the Rani Laxmibai biopic in Jaipur. Once the schedule ends in December, she will sign on the dotted line. The director will be finalized in a month.”
Arunima is not only first Indian amputee but also the first female amputee in the world to climb Mount Everest. She is a former national volleyball and football player as well. She was pushed from a running train by some robbers in 2011 while she was resisting them. It was her aim to climb the highest peaks of all the continents and hoist the national flag of India. She has already done five peaks: Everest in Asia, Kosciuszko in Australia, Elbrus in Europe, Kilimanjaro in Africa, and Aconcagua in Argentina.
