Sony Pictures acquires rights to produce Jhulan Goswami biopic 

After the successful run of PadMan and 102 Not Out, Sony Pictures International Productions India has acquired the rights to produce a biopic on the legendary cricketer Jhulan Goswami. Goswami is an all round cricketer who plays for India national women’s cricket team. She is the highest wicket taker in Women’s ODI cricket. The studio will develop and produce the film in partnership with Dunamis Entertainment, a press release said.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh also announced the news on his Twitter. He wrote, "Fresh from the success of #PadMan and #102NotOut, Sony Pictures International Productions India acquires rights for a biopic on legendary cricketer Jhulan Goswami... Sony will develop and produce #JhulanBiopic in partnership with Dunamis Entertainment." 

The film will explore the inner and outer world of Goswami - the story of a little girl from Nadia in West Bengal who went on to become the highest wicket taker in international women's cricket. Jhulan Goswami won the ICC Women’s Player of the Year 2007 and the M.A. Chidambaram Trophy for Best Women Cricketer in 2011. She is succeeded by Mithali Raj who lead the women’s cricket team in 2017 World Cup.

An inspiring story of the all-rounder and former skipper of the national team, the movie will highlight various spheres of her life - riddled with extreme hardships and massive achievements.

After "102 Not Out" and "Padman", the biopic is Sony Pictures India's latest project.
