It looks like there is stiff competition for the leading role in the biopic on track and field star P.T. Usha. While Katrina Kaif’s name has been doing the rounds for a while, it looks like Jacqueline Fernandez is also being considered for the role.
When asked about the biopic, Kaif said, “Yes, we are still discussing it. There’s nothing concrete and I wouldn’t like to say anything more than that,” as according to Pinkvilla.
A source also spoke to Pinkvilla about Fernandez’s possible casting, “Jacqueline Fernandez too has been offered the part. Jacqueline, who was taking a small acting course, is back to the city and recently met the biopic’s director to discuss the film. She had been approached for the project a few months ago. Although initially she was skeptical of leading a complete film, Jacqueline wants to experiment with her characters now. She has not only been approached for the PT Usha biopic, but is also in talks for the remake of Arth. In all probabilities, she will play Smita Patil’s role from the original.”
Meanwhile, Kaif is being appreciated for her role in her last release ‘Bharat’ (2019).
