It was earlier reported that Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment will be producing the biopic. While talking about the biopic, Ritesh had told Mumbai Mirror, “I had watched videos of her and knew that her life story was unreal, but when I met her and she let me hold her medal, the sheer weight of the silver gave me gooseflesh. As she sat in front of me, there was nothing differently-abled about her. She was empowering, a pillar of strength, and I knew that we needed to take her fight to the big screen.”
