Tamannaah to play sports coach in next with Gopichand
All set for her big release of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Tamannaah Bhatia is set to work in a yet-to-be-titled sports drama with Telugu actor Gopichand.
Said to be directed by Sampath Nandi, the film is said to be about an all-girls team, where Tamannaah will play the role of a coach.
“I share a great working relationship with the director and when the story was narrated to me, I found the script very exciting and experimental. Sports is something that has always intrigued me. There will be a lot of groundwork that I will have to undergo right from accent to my posture to technical knowledge to prepare myself well for this film. My role is a tribute of sorts to coaches like Pullela Gopichand, Ramakant Achrekar, Guru Hanuman, Satpal Singh and the likes who have turned things around for Indian sports,” she reportedly said, talking to a leading media organisation.
Apart from Sye, Tamannaah was seen in Next Enti.
