Biopics have become one of the most successful ways of capturing the imagination of the audience and scoring commercially at the box office. In the last decade, many biopics are made involving a wide variety of people, and the trend is not going to stop anytime soon.
It is, therefore, not a big surprise that OTT platforms are also coming on board with this trend. Zee5 has announced a biopic on Basketball player Satnam Singh Bhamara. The 24 years old Punjabi lad became the first Indian to play in an NBA team. He played for Dallas Mavericks.
The journey of Bhamara from a village in Punjab to NBA is a heart-warming one. It will be an inspiration for many youngsters and will also make one look beyond cricket in India, felt Ashima Avasthi, Head and VP, Zee Studious Original.
Zee5, as well as Satnam Singh Bhamara, were thrilled to announce the project. An excited Bharama shared his feeling on Twitter, saying that it feels unreal that a film is being made on him. He wished that the movie will boost the game in India, and more kids will play it and get people’s support.
