Hrithik Roshan to play Sourav Ganguly in biopic? Here is what BCCI president has to say
While Mahendra Singh Dhoni might be the most successful Indian cricket team captain, it was Sourav Ganguly under whom the transition process had started. The former Bengal batsman injected fresh energy into the Indian side and helped the team reach 2003 ODI World Cup, amid other achievements.
While Mahendra Singh Dhoni might be the most successful Indian cricket team captain, it was Sourav Ganguly under whom the transition process had started. The former Bengal batsman injected fresh energy into the Indian side and helped the team reach 2003 ODI World Cup, amid other achievements. The current BCCI president surely deserves a biopic for his excellent career.
For the last few days, several reports have been doing rounds, claiming that Hrithik Roshan is the frontrunner to play Ganguly in the biopic. Even though there is no official word on this, lot of speculation is being made on the internet.
Now, the former Indian cricket team captain himself has addressed the issue. In an interaction with Neha Dhupia on her chat show, Ganguly said that he'd very much like Hrithik to play him in the film but added that the War star may have to work on his physique to look like him.
During their interaction, first Sourav said that he could think of no one who can play him on screen. When Neha said Hrithik was the closest she could think of, Sourav told her, “But he’s got to get a body like me, first. Lot of people would say the way Hrithik’s body is, how good-looking he is, and how muscular he is, people would say ‘Aree, you’ll have to get a body like Hrithik’. But, Hrithik will have to get a body like me first.”
While Ganguly didn’t confirm if a biopic is still being made, he hinted towards it.
On the work front, Ganguly is currently in UAE for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. He recently flew from India and shared a selfie. Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan was last seen in Super 30, where he played Bihar based teacher Anand Kumar. He had also acted in highly successful War in the same year.
There are rumours that he will be featuring in his father Rakesh Roshan's Krrish movie now.
