Hyderabad: PV Sindhu made history to become the first Indian to win a gold medal at the BWF World Championships. She defeated Japanese player Nozomi Okuhara 21-7 21-17 in 38 minutes.

It is rumoured that Bollywood is preparing to screen the film based on her life. Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is reported to be playing the role of Coach Pullela Gopichand.

When media asked Gopichand about the same on Wednesday he replied, "I like Akshay Kumar. If he plays my part... Would be awesome. Because... He is one of the people I admire the most. But I have no clarity on the biopic."
