Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut who received enthusiastic reviews for her portray of a Gujarati divorcee, Praful Patel in Simran is seemingly set to sign a movie on the life of Arunima Sinha. Arunima is the first woman amputee to have ever scaled the Mount Everest. Arunima Sinha is a national level volleyball player and was pushed out of a moving train by thieves in 2011.
Kangana is presently busy shooting her next, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. A source revealed a tabloid, “The makers were to decide between Kriti Sanon and Kangana Ranaut. Since the latter’s schedule looked packed because she’s shooting for Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, they were skeptical. But, Arunima took the final call on the lead.”
Previously Farhan Akhtar was supposed to make a movie on Arunima Sinha. “Farhan had come to meet me at my place here on May 18 and proposed to make a film on my life highlighting my struggle. I have accepted the offer. Farhan said he wanted to make the film on her so that people could know about my struggle and get motivated just like his movie ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ through which life of a great athlete was presented before the world,” Arunima had revealed a tabloid.
A source disclosed, “The biopic on Arunima will be shot in a straight 60-day schedule. Kangana is currently shooting for the Rani Laxmibai biopic in Jaipur. Once the schedule ends in December, she will sign on the dotted line. The director will be finalized in a month.”
