Last year Bollywood saw many biopics and surprisingly all of them went very well with the audience. You can still recollect some amazing works like Rustom, Neerja, Sarbjit, Azhar, MS Dhoni and the recent blockbuster Dangal! If you take a look of how these movies fared, you will see that Bollywood is setting a new trend of biopics and of course it is proving to be a sure shot way of winning the accolades and the appreciation both at the same time! This year too, there is one more biopic already to amaze the audience and it is directed by none other than actor Rahul Bose! Rahul is all set with his new film ‘Poorna’ based upon the youngest girl ever to climb Mount Everest.

Now we have not seen Rahul as frequently as other stars in the Bollywood flicks but whenever he appears, he definitely leaves a mark! Rahul gave some of the hatke performances in the films like Dil Dhadakne Do, Chameli, Pyaar Ke Side Effects, Mr and Mrs Iyer and many others. Now he is already in the role of a director with a strong content driven film!

Let us give you the deets upon whom the biopic is! Malavath Purna at the age of 13 years and 11 months did this marvellous job of scaling the highest peak of Mount Everest. This girl from Telangana did this wonder at a really very young age and we wonder how no one actually thought of making a film on her before this!
