Karan Johar is now entering into a new genre – Biopic as we hear that the filmmaker is all set to make a movie on the former skipper and the present president of BCCI Saurav Ganguli. Yes, you heard it right, KJo is in talks with Dada to make a movie on him. As per reports, the director seems to be have been meeting Dada thrice and is working out something on this venture. This was revealed by none other than Dada himself when asked about the same.
When he was asked as to whom he would prefer to play his role, he said he would like to see Hrithik play his character on the silver screen. But if you believe in the reports, the makers are now busy hunting for a leading man to play this character. While talking about the sports biopic Dada said that he liked the movies made on Cricket personalities including MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, and Sachin A Billion Dreams and he liked these films as well. He also said that Ekta Kapoor has approached her to make a film on her but things between the two did not work.
While talking about the sports biopic, we have seen a couple of them in B Town. Apart from the above-named ones, we also had one on Mohd Azhar the former captain of the Indian Team starring Emraan Hashmi along with Paan Singh Tomar starring Irrfan Khan and Mary Kom starring Priyanka Chopra. These films have done well at the box office and both the critics and audience have liked the same. We now have another film called 83 that showcases the victory of the Indian Cricket team in 1983 with Ranveer Singh playing the leading role of Kapil Dev.
