Cinestaan signs a biopic on Vijay Amritraj

Vijay Amritraj
Cinestaan Film Company (CFC) is making a biopic of one of India’s greatest tennis heroes Vijay Amritraj. Amritraj has not only shown his prowess as a sports commentator but also acted in Hollywood films like Star Trek and Octopussy which were global hits.

 Rohit Khattar, Chairman of Cinestaan Film Company says, “Before Vijay, no Indian sportsman has been celebrated on the world stage in this manner. We all felt so proud as Indians to read about his triumphs overseas and today we, at Cinestaan Film Company are thrilled to help bring his incredibly inspiring story to the screen. Many who know of Vijay’s successes will be in awe when they see the challenges that were presented to him in early life before he achieved greatness, as we were when we heard it first hand from him.”

The 63 year old Padma Shree awardee’s son Prakash, who is co-producing the film says, “I’ve always felt beyond blessed to have my greatest hero and my father be the same person. While the world knows of his numerous achievements, my brother Vikram and I have always felt if everyone was to know his character and the love that made him; the world could truly be a better place and more seeds of love, inspiration, and hope will be sewn. I can’t be more excited to bring this story to the big screen with my tremendously passionate partner in Cinestaan Film Company.”

The film will focus on Vijay’s exploits on the court, his personal life and social work. Attributing his achievements to familial support, Vijay said, “Parents love compassion dedication and hard work under the most trying circumstances can make a child’s dream come true even if he or she is nowhere near good enough in anything. I am humbled that a company like Cinestaan Film Company would want to tell my story but this is about mothers, children and overwhelming love.”
