Hrithik to play Ganguly in biopic

Buzz is that a biopic on former cricketer Sourav Ganguly is on the cards. And it is also reported that Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan has been approached to play the former Indian cricket captain.

The report further states that filmmaker-producer Karan Johar will likely produce the movie and the two have met to discuss it.

Previously, Sourav has talked about cricketers’ biopics in Bollywood.

”I liked the MS Dhoni biopic, (M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story). Tendulkar’s biopic (Sachin A Billion Dreams) was a little different. Now we have a film on the 1983 World Cup-winning team. That will be huge and I will watch it. As far as my biopic is concerned, we will wait and see.”

Hrithik Roshan was last seen in War alongside Tiger Shroff.
