Biopics are inspiring and the audience love it, no wonder why Bollywood is portraying stories of real life heroes on the big screen. There are great stories that are in the making. During the promotion of his new film Gold, Akshay Kumar revealed on whose life he wants to make a biopic. The actor said that he would love to make a biopic on an athlete. The Holiday actor wants to make a biopic on Indian sprinter Hima Das.
He was praising Hima Das for her potential and said, “I would like to make a biopic on Hima Das. She’s a young achiever, in a sport that India’s not identified with on the international stage. She won gold in a track and field event, which is a huge achievement and should be highlighted through a movie. As Indians, we run and get on to a bus and train easily. So we have the potential to run. It’s only a matter of time and encouragement before we can make a name for ourselves in track and field events.”
Hima Das (born 9 January 2000) is an Indian sprinter. She comes from the state of Assam, which is in the North-East region of India. She became the first Indian to win a Gold medal in a track event at the World Junior Athletics Championships in 2018.
Recently, when Akshay Kumar was asked if he wants a biopic to be made on his life, he said that he will never make one on his life. The actor said he will not even write a book on his life. Akshay also said that if he makes a biopic on his life, he would look like a fool and would better make one on the life of a real hero.
Talking about Gold, the film also stars Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor and Amit Sadh. The film is slated to release on August 15, 2018.
