Mumbai, May 23 : After his 2002 film “Everybody Says I’m Fine!”, actor Rahul Bose has returned to direction with “Poorna“, a biopic about Malavath Poorna — a tribal girl from Telangana.

Poorna created history on May 25, 2014, by becoming the youngest girl in the world to scale Mount Everest.

Rahul, who was last seen in “Dil Dhadakne Do“, will also act in the film.

“I bought the rights from Poorna’s father and Dr RS Praveen Kumar but knew how easy it would be for someone to change the names and come up with a ‘me too’ film. But now that Poorna has been shot and will be ready to be screened for a studio in six weeks, I can talk about it,” Rahul said in a statement.

Rahul is yet to show the film to Poorna and her father. And he plans to take the film to her village, where they shot for 11 days.

Aditi Inamdar, a girl hailing from Telangana, was chosen to play the role of female lead after Rahul auditioned 109 girls.

Rahul will be essaying the role of her father.

The actor added that “it has no ‘jhalak’ of Bollywood, yet makes you cry. That’s because Poorna is one of the most remarkable people I’ve met – Focussed, disciplined, thoughtful yet fun-loving…Her story needs to be told to world.”

Sonu Sood

Mumbai, Jan 16 : Actor Sonu Sood is putting his weight behind an initiative to set up a pan-India platform to promote young emerging cricketers.

“I always dreamt of becoming a cricketer but I didn’t have a platform in our small town, but when I see all these young kids playing cricket it feels really good,” Sonu said.

He says pitching in for the cause of promoting budding talent in cricket will also let him take time off his busy schedule and reinvent his passion for the sport.

“I like batting as well as bowling but I didn’t get much time to play the sport. I feel we all should take some out from our busy work schedules and reinvent our passion. Sometimes when you see these kids playing not just cricket but any kind of sports, you feel motivated to follow them,” he said, adding that he has had discussions with Cricfit founder Mikkail Vaswani on “creating a platform on a pan-India level where they (children) can explore their skills and enjoy the sports”.

Since last year, Sonu has turned focus on social causes. In 2020, amid Covid lockdown, he reportedly arranged transport to facilitate around 7.5 lakh migrant workers to reach home. He equipped frontline workers with masks and face shields, airlifted students stranded abroad and helped farmers in distress. He also launched Pravasi Rojgar, an app to help skilled and unskilled workers find jobs.

On work front, Sonu will next be seen in “Prithviraj” starring Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt and Manushi Chhillar, apart from a couple of films in the South.
