Sonu Sood is gearing up for his second production venture, a biopic of Rio Olympics silver medal winning badminton player PV Sindhu. The actor has termed the project a very challenging task. It was earlier reported that Sood might approach Deepika Padukone to essay the role of Sindhu.

“Sometimes in a story, there is a climax, a pre-climax and a story behind it. So sometimes you just focus on a climax and then build a story. But for me, it’s not the climax but the story, the journey which inspired me to make this film. And we are taking notes of people who all thought that biopics on a 21 or 22-year-old is not the right time. “I think it’s more challenging for us to prove them wrong, that the film will be something that will inspire people,” said Sonu, who was present at the unveiling of a magazine. The magazine cover shows Sonu flaunting his abs.

About the film, Sood said: “Badminton is just the canvas of the film but the story is about the girl from a small town and how did she achieve her goals.” He said that the story would be very inspirational and people will definitely connect with it.

The actor, who is one of the fittest actors in Bollywood, says: “I think fitness and doing gym should be like brushing teeth everyday in the morning as it should come automatically without any excuse.”

Sood, who was last seen in action-comedy film Kung Fu Yoga opposite superstar Jackie Chan, shared his experience of working with him. “Working with Jackie Chan was one of the most phenomenal experiences, I won’t say that he is the most grounded actor but he is the most grounded human being I have ever seen,” he said.

Sonu was recently trolled on internet for the Azaan controversy raked by singer Sonu Nigam but as people got confused between the two, targeting the Dabangg actor. However, he said: “I enjoyed it. I was in Punjab and my friends called me and told me about it, I was not even aware about what was happening.”

Sonu, who had worked with Vinod Khanna, in Dabbang feels blessed for the same. “I was blessed to work with Vinodji. We had spent many days together, I always used to feel that he has achieved so much and yet he had that hunger to give his best,” he said. Khanna died on April 27 after a prolonged battle with bladder cancer.

“I would say he was the true superstar industry was blessed with,” he added. Sood will be next seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, a period drama starring Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
