Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has expressed his interest to make a biopic on India’s golden girl Hima Das. In what was a spectacular achievement, 18-year-old girl Hima Das became the first Indian women to win a gold medal at the IAAF World Under-20 Athletics Championships held at Tempere in Finland.
Hima Das came through with flying colours at the track event when she clinched the top spot in the women’s 400 m final race on the third day of competitions. She made India proud. After she won a gold, countless wishes kept pouring on the Indian stalwart. One of the Bollywood celebrities, Akshay Kumar congratulated Hima Das on her sensational achievement.
In an interview to TOI, Akshay Kumar said that he would like to make a biopic on Hima Das. “I would like to make a biopic on Hima Das. She’s a young achiever, in a sport that India’s not identified with on the international stage. She won gold in a track and field event, which is a huge achievement and should be highlighted through a movie,” TOI quoted Akhshay as saying.
“As Indians, we run and get on to a bus and train easily. So we have the potential to run. It’s only a matter of time and encouragement before we can make a name for ourselves in track and field events,” he added.
Since Hima Das wrote her success story with her first ever gold medal for the country, Akshay believes, it’s necessary to record her achievement, particularly for future generations. From Assam’s rice fields to becoming India’s first world gold medallist on track, she is now an inspiration to countless Indians.
You don’t need a magic wand to become successful in life. All that you require is the willingness to succeed, the will to do things, the ability to move on and the perseverance to try even when there are failures and Hima Das proved that she has all these abilities to attain success in life.
