Lara Dutta stepped into the shoes of a producer back in 2011 with ‘Chalo Dilli’. With the comedy film having fared well, the actress-turned-producer may have found an inspiration to her next producing venture.
According the reports, Dutta wants to make a film based on the Chattishgarh Women’s Basketball team, who won every major title in India last year.Times of Indiareported the producer saying, “I have always wanted to tell stories that celebrate the strength of human spirit. When we were looking for our second subject, this fantastic story suddenly popped up in our search. Madhya Pradesh has always given the country decent basketball teams but the efforts of coach Rajesh Patel, who led the Chhattisgarh Girls team to success, was truly the game changer for both the sport and girls.”
“Whilst working at the Bhilai Steel Plant and as the Head Coach of all of Chhattisgarh’s State Women’s teams, Patel led the team to extraordinary success, making it a true-to-life fairy tale story. A love for the game, coupled with the celebration of the indomitable human spirit, made this an ideal story for us to chase and recreate,” she went on to say.
As the idea is still in its very early stages, there hasn’t been much else said on the matter. Here’s hoping Dutta will be able to progress this film into something inspiring as well as entertaining.
