A bio-pic on Karnam Malleswari, the legendary weightlifter, who is the first Indian woman to win a medal at the Olympics, will be made soon. It will be made in Tamil, Telugu & Hindi. MVV Satyanarayana and Kona Venkat are producing the movie. Sanjana Reddy will wield the megaphone.
Written by Kona Venkat, the film’s cast and crew details will be announced soon.
Kona Venkat says, ‘The movie will not focus only on Karnam Malleswari winning the medal for India or being honoured with the Padma Shri. This is about her life journey and how she should have got better recognition. The film will give an insight into her life beyond what you could get from the internet.’
