Deepika Padukone’s father, renowned badminton player Prakash Padukone, is having his biography turned into a film. Deepika said that she is working on the project on Cyrus Broacha’s show. She also spoke about the challenges he had in putting Indian sports on the map around the world. That was before India’s cricket team won the World Cup in 1983, bringing honour to the country.

She said, “Actually, even before 83 happened, he was one of the first Indian athletes to put India on the global map as far as Indian sport is concerned. He won the World Championship in 1981, which was obviously before 1983.”

Deepika also opened up about how he trained with limited resources and made the best out of what he had. She said, “He trained in a marriage hall, that was his badminton court. He used things like the beams that go across to make his shot more precise. He actually used his disadvantages to his advantage. If he had the facilities that athletes in India have today, then he’d be far more superior.”
