Alia Bhatt is in that phase of her career where she hardly has a free day as she is loaded with interesting movies and scripts. Fans are already excited to watch the actress do wonders with her performance in upcoming Bollywood movies like Kalank, Brahmastra and Sadak 2 that the latest reports suggest that she will step into the shoes of Arunima Sinha, world's first Indian female amputee to climb Mount Everest. Alia is already making waves in Bollywood and her last release Gully Boy has even strengthened her name as a brilliant actress in the industry.
Arunima Sinha’s biopic has been in the making for years and the reports suggest that Alia Bhatt has given her nod for the film. A source told DNA, “Arunima’s life has been an inspiration to many across the globe and what she has managed isn’t just an ordinary feat. When makers approached her to make a film on her and told her they were planning to get Alia on board, she was excited.” The biopic will be based on the book, 'Born Again on the Mountain: A Story of Losing Everything and Finding it Back.' The source further added, “It’s an incredible tale. Alia studied her story and gave her nod to the project. Although the producers haven’t locked her dates yet, given that her diary is packed with other film commitments, they expect to begin the project in 2020.”
The reports also suggest that “Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions will bankroll the project. Alia will have to do different kinds of prep for the film. Firstly, she will be playing an amputee on-screen, also they plan to shoot in real locations at Mount Everest, which will require proper training, too.” Well, if everything goes as planned, two of the biggest names in Bollywood will merge yet again and a blockbuster is expected.
