Chennai: Filmmaker Praveen Sataru will soon direct a yet-untitled Telugu film on the life of Indian badminton champion Pullela Gopichand. Actor Sudheer Babu, who is a professional badminton player, will reprise Gopichand on screen.
"I'm busy with the film's script and as soon as I complete it, we plan to go on floors. I chose Sudheer because he's a professional badminton player, who trained under Gopi for four years. I thought it would be apt to cast him because he can do justice to the character," Praveen told IANS.
"I haven't decided on the cast yet, but if everything works out we might make it in Hindi as well as English. Sudheer is very excited to be part of the project," he added.
Praveen is known for his films such as "Routine Love Story" and "Chandamama Kathalu".
