Khattar, Chairman of CFC, said, "Before Vijay, no Indian sportsman was celebrated on the world stage in this manner. As Indians, we all felt proud to read about his triumphs overseas and today, we are thrilled to help bring his incredibly inspiring story on the screen. Many who know of Vijay's successes will be in awe when they see the challenges that he faced early in life, before achieving greatness."

 

Amritraj on all this commented saying "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 this would want to tell my story, but in reality, it's about mothers, children and overwhelming love."

 

Well, this movie is certainly going to give us lots of learning! We wish great luck to the makers!
