India's greatest badminton player and top coach Pullela Gopichand quashes reports that he asked the makers of his biopic to change the script. The champion is back in the news after his disciple P V Sindhu brought Silver Medal to India in Rio Olympics 2016.
For the past one-year, director Praveen Sattaru and his producers are working on to make a film on the life of Gopichand and roped in Sudheer Babu as hero but the movie got delayed for various reasons.
Now that Gopichand is being hailed for his coaching to PV Sindhu, there were reports that he wanted some changes to be done in the script now. But Pullela says he already has given the rights to the makers long back.
"I didn't call them or they approached me about this biopic recently leave alone suggesting changes in the script," he told the media.
He stresses that as long as the moviemakers stick to the original idea and truthful to his life, he has no problem about any "creative changes" they wish to make.
