SHAHID KAPOOR TO DO A BIOPIC ON THE LIFE OF THIS SPORTSPERSON

Seems like Bollywood has found a new success mantra in the biopics. From the last couple of years, we have seen movies like Marykom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and recently released movie Sanju. All these movies were based on true life incidents. While Marykom (played by Priyanka Chopra) was based on the life of a North-east Indian boxer, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag was based on the journey of an athlete (Milkha Singh played by Farhan Akhtar) who was facing a duel with himself. Now adding to the list is Shahid Kapoor. Recently, Radha Krishna Menon has shown interest in working with the actor. Menon, who is known for movies like Airlift and Chef, is coming with another real-life story. The story revolves around the life of an award-winning boxer who hails from the North-east. Ngangom Dingko Singh, who hails from Manipur, was the first and only Asian gold medal winner boxer from India in the Bantamweight category. Being a former Indian Navy officer, he was also awarded the highest civilian honor Padma Shri in the year 2013. But his story is much beyond that. He is also a cancer survivor but he has struggled to fight the ailment not just physically but also financially. In recent reports, Shahid Kapoor spoke about how he was impressed with the story of Dingko Singh whom he considers as one of the forgotten heroes of the country. Speaking about the same, Shahid stated that he is one of the superstars that the world isn’t much aware of. Elaborating on his story, the actor revealed that Dingko has undergone 13 rounds of chemotherapy when he was suffering from cancer. He also reminisced about how Singh believes that his biggest win was fighting cancer and not winning a gold medal at the young age of 19. On the work front, Shahid is currently busy in promoting his upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu. He will begin shooting by the end of this year.
