Kolkata, 26th February 2019 – SVF & Srijit Mukherji are glad to announce a never seen before biopic on Swapna Barman, the heptathlete who went on to make India proud by winning the gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games.
Swapna Barman became the first woman, not only from Bengal but also from India, to win the gold medal at the prestigious 2018 Asian Games at the tender age of 21. Inspite of being impaired with six toes on each foot and overcoming several obstacles throughout her sporting career, Swapna made India proud on International grounds through her immense hard-work and dedication.
The challenging role of the gifted sportsperson would be essayed by critically acclaimed actor Sohini Sarkar. The actor will be soon beginning her rigorous workshop to prepare for the inspirational role.
Directed by National Award-Winning director Srijit Mukherji, the lifetime Bengali rights of the film have been acquired by SVF.
Euphoric to announce the biopic, director Srijit Mukherji says: “Swapna is not only the pride of Bengal but has also made the nation proud with her achievement at such a young age after enduring so much. The film will focus on her life, her struggles and her achievements”
