Mumbai (PTI): A biopic on former Indian tennis legend Vijay Amritraj is in the works.
Cinestaan Film Company (CFC) has acquired rights to the film that will focus on Amritraj’s career, his personal life and philanthropic activities.
Amritraj achieved many firsts as a tennis champion. He has also acted in two Hollywood films “Star Trek” and “Octopussy”- which were global hits.
“Parents love, compassion, dedication and hard work under the most trying circumstances can make a child’s dream come true even if he or she is nowhere near good enough in anything. I am humbled that Cinestaan Film Company would want to tell my story,” Amritraj said in a statement.
The film will be co-produced by Amritraj’s son Prakash.
“I’ve always felt beyond blessed to have my greatest hero and my father be the same person. I am excited to bring this story to the big screen,” Prakash said.
