Chandu Champion movie, an upcoming Indian sports biopic, chronicles the extraordinary life of Murlikant Petkar, the nation’s first Paralympics gold medalist. Directed by Kabir Khan and starring Kartik Aaryan, the film promises to be an inspiring tale of resilience, sprinkled with comedy and unwavering determination.

Murlikant Petkar is the first Paralympic gold medalist from India. He won an individual gold medal in the 1972, in Paralympics, in the summer of Heidelberg, Germany. He set a world record in the 50 m freestyle swimming event, at 37.33 seconds. In the same games he participated in javelin, precision javelin throw and slalom.

From Wrestler to Paralympian: Murlikant Petkar’s Remarkable Journey

Murlikant born with a passion for athletics, he excelled in wrestling during his youth. His dreams of a sporting career took a devastating turn when he suffered a life-altering injury while serving in the Indian Army. However, Petkar’s spirit remained unbroken. He embraced sports anew, turning his focus to events designed for athletes with disabilities.

Petkar’s journey to Paralympic glory wasn’t easy. He trained relentlessly, mastering sports like boxing, table tennis, and swimming. His dedication paid off in 1972 at the Munich Paralympics where he secured India’s first-ever Paralympic gold medal in the 50-meter freestyle swimming event. This historic victory not only cemented his place in sporting history but also inspired countless others to overcome challenges and chase their dreams.

Chandu Champion goes beyond the triumphs on the field. It delves into the personal struggles and unwavering spirit that propelled Murlikant Petkar to become a national hero. The film is poised to be a powerful testament to the human capacity for resilience and the transformative power of sport.
