The makers of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag have approached Dutee’s coach Nagapuri Ramesh for a biopic on the 20-year-old from Odisha. If things go as planned, a team from Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures (ROMP) could soon land in Hyderabad to discuss the script with the sprinter and her coach.

In fact, Mehra approached Dutee and her coach N Ramesh through Rupinder Singh, a renowned athletics commentator before the Olympics.

The movie makers are now in touch with a Bangalore-based sports management company who are negotiating the terms on behalf of Dutee. It is at Gopichand’s advise that sports management company came into the picture.
