While sports biopic are a rage in Bollywood, Deepika had a rather interesting response when she was asked about a film on a sports personality. Speaking to Bombay Times, Deepika had said that she would want to see a film made on her father Prakash Padukone and would love to essay the badminton legend on the silver screen. “I understand the gender issue (smiles). But if I had to play a sports person, then it would be him or any sports legend from that era. That’s because of what they achieved in the circumstances, within the limited exposure and knowledge versus the kind of funds, facilities and visibility available to athletes today. But in spite of all that, to achieve that greatness and legendary status is commendable. Our yesteryear athletes inspire me,” Deepika had shared.
