Sudheer Babu plays Pullela Gopichand in Telugu biopic

The director Praveen Sattaru is yet to zero in on  the cast but reveals Sudhir Babu would play Gopichand in the movie

Filmmaker Praveen Sattaru will soon direct a yet-untitled Telugu film on the life of Indian badminton champion Pullela Gopichand. The director revealed  that 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. Sudheer, who made his debut as hero in 2012 Telugu flick Siva Manasulo Sruthi,  is thrilled to reprise the role of his real life mentor on reel.

“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.
