It has been rumoured for long that a sports-based biopic on the legendary weightlifter Karnam Malleswari will be made in Telugu, Tamil and other languages simultaneously. The news is that the project has been made official.
Directed by Sajana Reddy of 'Raju Gaadu' fame, the film will be set against the backdrop of Malleswari's childhood, her journey in the field of weightlifting, her struggles and how she came to be the first Indian woman to win a medal at the Olympics.
Touted to be a pan-India movie, the multi-lingual is written by Kona Venkat. Produced by MVV Satyanarayana and Kona Venkat, the project will go on the floors later this year.
