Upen Patel could play the lead role in biopic on F1 racer Narain Karthikeyan
Bollywood these days has taken a new route to success. In recent times we have seen a sudden efflux of biopics both in Bollywood and regional cinema.

Biopics which are based on real-life characters have lately been doing quite well at the box office with the audiences taking to these stories in a spirited way. From stories of sports persons to social activists, every single saga is portrayed in a different manner, encapsulating a strong message along with controversies attached to the protagonist of the biopic.

The latest to join the bandwagon is India's first Formula One racer Narain Karthikeyan.

Sources reveal that a project is being considered and that a script is under process. It is believed that the film would be produced by makers of Rajinikanth's 'Robot 2.0'. The film would be in Hindi version though a Timl version is also on the cards. As per sources, model-turned-actor Upen Patel is being considered for the role.

Upen Patel is presently working in south and is part of a Tamil film. According to a report by Times of India, the actor has confirmed the news saying, "I was approached to play the role of Narain Karthikeyan in the biopic, but I haven't even read the script yet. I haven't made up my mind and will take a final call on the basis of script."

Narain Karthikeyan, is a racing car driver who became the first Formula One driver from India; he was awarded the fourth highest civilian honour of Padma Shri in 2010 by the Government of India.

Upen has been frequently seen shooting in Chennai these days. The actor was recently spotted shooting for Kannan's Boomerang with Atharvaa. The actor feels that Chennai has been lucky for him, be it his first film or his first modeling show.

If this project comes through, it would be a turning point in the actor's life.
