After MS Dhoni, Sushant Singh Rajput to do a biopic on Paralympic gold medalist Murlikant Petkar!
It's raining biopics for Sushant Singh Rajput. After Neeraj Pandey's 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story' the young actor has signed one more biopic based on the athlete Murlikant Petkar, who won a gold at the Commonwealth Games in 1970 and the Paralympics in Germany in 1972.

The army man-turned-sportsman went on to set a world record in the 50m freestyle swimming and, at the same games, participated in javelin, precision javelin throw and slalom. He was a finalist in all three events.

The film tentatively titled 'Murli The Unsung Hero' has been scripted by Prashant Singh and is slated to go on floors in mid 2017. The film journalist turned script writer was quoted as saying to Mumbai Mirror, "It was amazing to have Sushant come on board immediately." Even Murli was quoted as saying, " It is an honour that a famous star like him has shown interest in portraying me on screen. Till date, many people met me with lots of promises but nothing came of it."

Prashant further revealed, "The film will touch upon incidents in his life that range from his road trip to Kashmir to being shot by seven bullets in the 1965 war against Pakistan. In fact, a bullet is still in his spine! Left a paraplegic, young Petkar tried to commit suicide, but survived that too and finally won the Paralympic gold."

Meanwhile Sushant says that he is extremely excited to be a part of this project. He was quoted as saying to the daily, "I was amazed by his journey and immediately agreed that these stories need to be told. Petkar's journey is extra-ordinary and so compelling that it can change many lives by motivating people to accomplish the unthinkable. I am extremely excited to be associated with this project from its nascent stage."

Currently the makers are hunting for a director for this film which will be produced by Shekhar Kapur.
