Biographies of many sports personalities have been filmed in Bollywood. At the same time, work on the biography of the former cricketer and cricket commentator Sourav Ganguly is under discussion. Ranbir Kapoor’s name used to make headlines as the actor of his character in his biopic, but it is now reported that Ayushmann Khurrana will play his role in the film.
During the promotion of “Dream Girl 2”, Ayushmann Khurrana gave a big hint in this direction in an event. Speaking to Pinkvilla, Ayushmann said, “I’m not saying anything now.” Whenever and whatever happens, we have to make an official announcement. At the same time, sources have informed Mid-Day that Ayushmann Khurrana is ready to work on Sourav Ganguly’s biography.
It is said that the two directors and producers Ankur Garg and Luv Ranjan recently met Sourav at his residence in Behala and discussed the film at length. The script for the film has been completed and preparations are now being made to record some interesting stories from the life of the former cricketer.
Significantly, sports biographies are a recipe for success in Indian cinema. From Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Flying Sikh Milkha Singh and Mahavir Singh Phogat to Mary Kom, all the films have done a good job. In addition to Sourav Ganguly, former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami’s biopic ‘Chakda Express’, which will star Anushka Sharma, is also in the pipeline.
Ayushmann Khurrana is currently enjoying the success of his recently released film Dream Girl 2. Its film fans are very popular and the film surpassed the global 100 crore mark within 9 days of its release.
