Cricket and Bollywood is one of India’s best combinations which have always created wonders at the box office.
After cricket centric films like Lagaan, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Azhar and a documentary movie on Sachin Tendulkar, now, a biopic on the life of ex-Indian skipper and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has finally got a nod. The news has been confirmed by Sourav himself.
Talking to a leading news portal, Sourav confirming the news said, “Yes, I have agreed to the biopic. It will be in Hindi but it is not possible to say the name of the director now. It will take a few more days for arranging everything”.
Not only this, as per reports, none other than Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor has been finalized for the role.
According to sources, the former Indian captain’s biopic will be a big budget film which will be made under a big banner-production house with a budget of around Rs 200 to Rs.250 crores. If reports were to believe, the script is currently being written. The production house has had multiple meetings with dada. The entire journey of Sourav Ganguly - till he becomes BCCI president - will be captured in the biopic. There’s no clarity yet on when the movie will be released.
