Assam’s Hima Das has made the entire country proud by following her heart and breaking a world with her commendable persistence and grit. The entire country has been singing her praises ever since she became the first Indian to win a Gold medal in a track event at the World Junior Athletics Championships recently.
She has impressed everyone including Bollywood Actor Akshay Kumar who expressed his admiration for her by saying that he would like to make a biopic on the sprinter!
Akshay Kumar, a martial arts expert, has recently finished work on Gold, a movie documenting India’s first gold in hockey at the London Olympics just a year after independence – 1948.
Akshay was all praise about Hima as he spoke at an event where he was asked on which Indian sports woman he would like to make a biopic on. He replied that he wants to make a biopic on Hima Das from Assam!
“She’s a young achiever, in a sport that India’s not identified with on the international stage. She won gold in a track and field event, which is a huge achievement and should be highlighted through a movie,” he said.
Speculations are doing the rounds after he spoke about the biopic on Hima with industry experts predicting that the project is probably in the pipeline already!
