Sonakshi Sinha to play lead role in Deepa Malik biopic

Actress Sonakshi Sinha,  who is awaiting the release of her upcoming film Khandaani Shafakhana, is all set to star in a biopic based on Paralympic silver medalist Deepa Malik.   It was reported that Sonakshi has been approached to play the titular role as Deepa Malik in an untitled biopic. 

Reacting to this news, Sonakshi says, “It is a speculation for now. I don’t like to talk about things until I sign on the dotted lines, so let it be speculation for now. But I promise you henceforth the scripts that I will choose will be very interesting.”

“I have been wanting to do a biopic for a very long time, and if I get the right one and if I get the story that’s really worth telling then I would jump for it,” she adds.

Describing the time Sinha met Malik, the ‘Dabangg’ (2010) actress said, “I met Deepa Malik and she is a lovely lady. What a strong-willed woman, even in that one conversation I could tell. She is on a wheelchair, and not once did she make me feel anything negative, because sometimes you bend to click a picture, but she stood tall. That’s how proud a woman she is; she is a great lady.”

Deepa Malik became the first Indian woman to win a medal at the Paralympics. She was presented with the Arjuna Award in 2012, at the age of 42, and was felicitated with the prestigious Padma Shri Award in 2017.
