Kangana to turn director with a biopic?
The actress is said to be interested in starring in and directing a biopic on Arunima Sinha, the first female amputee to have conquered Mt Everest
The trials and tribulations of Arunima Sinha, the first female amputee to have conquered Mt Everest, will soon be told on the big screen.
Dar Motion Pictures will tell the life story of 29-year- old Arunima, a national level volleyball player who was pushed from a running train by some robbers in 2011 when she was resisted them. As a result, one of her legs had to be amputated below the knee. Besides scaling Mt Everest, she has also climbed Kilimanjaro in Africa, Elbrus in Europe, Kosciuszko in Australia, Aconcagua in Argentina and Carstensz Pyramid (Puncak Jaya) in Indonesia, showing that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
“After long deliberations, a decision to make a film on my life’s journey has been taken and it is likely to be completed by next year,” says Arunima. According to her, Kangana Ranaut has evinced interest in playing the main character and has also shown an eagerness to direct the film herself.
Earlier, Farhan Akhtar too had shown interest in making a film on the life of the mountaineer but things could not materialise. Arunima said the film will be made in Hindi and later it will be released worldwide with sub-titles. “The title of the film is not yet decided,” she adds.
