Sports Desk- Film director Karan Johar is all set with his new project and this time it’s a biopic. Yes, Karan Johar is reportedly making a film on the Indian Cricket team’s former captain and the president of BCCI Sourav Ganguly. A lot of biopics have been made on a sportsperson. Be it Mary Kom, Azhar, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Sachin A Billion Dreams or MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, all these have done really well on the Box Office.
Could have a biopic on his life directed by Karan Johar, with Hrithik Roshan taking up the lead actor’s role, as per reports. However, no confirmed report has been revealed so far. Sourav is always called ‘Dada’, so it is believed that the name of this film will be ‘Dadagiri’.
Earlier, when Dada was quizzed about his biopic, he revealed that he had a chat with Ekta Kapoor once, but nothing came out of it.
“Is it, Ekta Kapoor? Then yes, she approached me and we talked about it once. Nothing went further than that. I have never thought of a biopic [on me] though there are a host of sports biopics being made. If there is time, then someone will make one on me. I hope people would be interested in seeing the film,” said Sourav Ganguly.
