On Tuesday, July 6, filmmaker Ashoke Pandit announced on his social media account that he has acquired the rights to the film about Indian athlete Pinki Pramanik’s life. This one-of-a-kind case was only a short part of Pinki’s life, yet it had a profound influence. Pinki’s journey, according to writer Priyanka Ghatak, does not end with gender determination and identity. It’s a far broader problem that hasn’t been addressed in mainstream cinema. She was a female track and field athlete who represented India in various prestigious international competitions, winning gold and silver medals.
