Neerja movie fame actress Sonam Kapoor is in favor of making movie based on Indian track and event athlete PT Usha. Biopic of legendary sprinter is finalized with female star cast name of Sonam Kapoor which is still a suspense. Before finalizing this movie, actress was asked for making biopic based on sportswomen P V Sindhu and Sakshi Malik, who eanrned medals at Rio Olympics. But Sonam Kapoor thinks that first of all inspirational story of PT Usha should be brought forward on silver screens.

Sonam Kapoor says “Films on sports should be encouraged as it inspires people. India should also be known for sports.”
