After Milkha Singh, will there be a biopic on PT Usha?
Ranchi: India's sprint legend P T Usha's life is set to get a big screen treatment after biopic Bhaag Milkha Bhaag on 'Flying Sikh' Milkha Singh.
"Somebody approached my husband to do a film based on my life and career. He didn't say yes or no to the person," Usha told PTI here today.
However, the athlete from Kerala said the time is yet to come to make a film on her. "The film on Milkha Singh released at the right time. A film on my life can wait as my task is unfinished. I am still into athletics," she said.
Indicating her aim to produce a medal winner in the Olympics and pinning her hope on K D Sindhu to do the wonders which she failed in 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, Usha said she liked "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
"I have watched the film. It is good and youngsters will definitely be motivated watching this," she added. The movie showed Milkha (essayed by Farhan Akhtar) missing a medal for glancing over his shoulders to see who was catching him up.
Usha said she failed to clinch a medal in the 1984 Olympics as she did not know that a runner should lunge forward while breasting the tape.
"I lost because I didn't bend at the finishing line. It was due to lack of experience and exposure at the international level," she added.
