Wow! Now wouldn't that be quite a cool biopic to look forward to? Here's what Dip said on the same...
We all can never forget that moment when Dipa Karmakar was standing alongside all the gymnast medalists as she prepped for the final vault at Rio Olympics. With a really small margin of points, Karmakar received the fourth position while the top three were taken over by other gymnasts. Of course, this didn't put us down as even reaching such a big position for India in itself is something to be proud of. So imagine if a biopic is to be made on her, who would be the ideal face that can pull off her persona and character in reel life? Well, the gymnast can only think of Katrina Kaif!
Post her big achievement at Rio Olympics 2016, as Dipa made her way home, media thronged outside the airport in anticipation of getting some insights of her experience. Every media wanted to interact with this young achiever. So when a leading portal got such an opportunity, they asked her who would she like to see portray her onscreen if a biopic was made on her, she said, "Oh, anybody who can do the Produnova well," before adding, "My favourite actress is Katrina Kaif though. But if they decide to make a film on me, whoever they choose, it would be an honour for me to see my story on the big screen." That's a cue for you, Kat!
