Make more films like Mary Kom

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Su­niel Shetty (right) feels Bol­ly­wood should make more biopics like Mary Kom, as there are many great sports per­son­al­i­ties in In­dia, who need to be talked about. “I feel Bol­ly­wood should make more movies on In­dian sports per­son­al­i­ties, just like Mary Kom, which is a trend­set­ter film,” Su­niel said.

In­dian cin­ema is in a phase where sev­eral film­mak­ers are dig­ging into life sto­ries of sportsper­sons. Af­ter movies on boxer MC Mary Kom, sprinter Milkha Singh, ath­lete Paan Singh To­mar, there are more biopics com­ing on crick­eter Ma­hen­dra Singh Dhoni, in which Sushant Singh Ra­jput is play­ing the In­dian skip­per. Karan Jo­har has also bought the rights to make a biopic on hockey leg­end Dhyan Chand.

The di­rec­tor of Mary Kom — Omung Ku­mar, who is work­ing on a biopic on Sarab­jit Singh, the In­dian con­vict who died in a Pak­istani prison, will soon start shoot­ing the film in De­cem­ber in Punjab.
