Biopic of former Indian cricketer Sourav Ganguly has been a hot topic of discussion for a long time now. However, neither the production house nor any actor confirmed about the film. Now according to the reports Ranbir Kapoor will be playing Sourav Ganguly on screen. Not only this Sourav himself has given a thumbs up for the biopic.
However, he is yet to sign the dotted lines. The film is reportedly mounted on a budget of about a whopping Rs 250 crore.
If we go by the reports published in Etimes, then Sourav’s wife Dona Ganguly also confirmed that many production houses from Mumbai as well as Kolkata have approached them for the biopic. She was quoted as saying, “Several production houses in Mumbai and Kolkata have shown keen interest in the biopic and Sourav is considering every option. The biopic is still in its nascent stage, but it is happening for sure.”
As per the reports, the makers have also started with scriptwriting and meetings have also begun between the cricketer and the filmmakers.
“The scriptwriting process is currently underway and Dada is having a series of meetings with the film team to share his inputs on the biopic. Although he has not signed the film yet, work on the project has kicked off,” the report stated.
Cricketer’s daughter Sana is also quite excited about the project and she is also sharing a lot of suggestions for her father’s biopic.
