Saurabh Ganguly played a key role in making the Indian cricket team, which was stuck in match-fixing, on the right track and made it a strong international team. He has served the Indian team as a captain. Fans consider him as a superhero of cricket. A film on the life of Ganguly, who is called “Dada” by his fans, is coming soon. Preparations are currently underway for that.
But there are reports that Bollywood’s chocolate boy Ranbir Kapoor is going to play the role of Ganguly. The news that Ranbir Kapoor gave the green signal for the role was doing the rounds that he would be well suited for the role. He said that Ranbir has also given dates and is going to Kolkata soon with the director to know about Ganguly. Along with hero Ranbir Kapoor, the director is going to go to Kolkata and visit the cab, Eden Gardens grounds and Ganguly’s house. Moreover, it is said that many interesting things happened in Ganguly’s career and will be included in the story.
Ganguly’s wife Donna Ganguly also responded to this. She said that the director should ask the producers about the biopic. “If I want to know about my favourites, I would say Amitabh Bachchan or Shahrukh Khan. But due to their age, they are not suitable for this film. 24-year-old should look like Ganguly too. Most of the film revolves around Ganguly at this age. Therefore, it is better to choose an actor suitable for that age,” she revealed.
Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor recently responded to this. He revealed that he is not doing this biopic. In an interview, Ranbir reacted, “Dada is a living legend. He has huge fans not only in India but all over the world. It would be good if he made a biopic. I love that. But the propaganda that I am acting in that movie is not true. No one has responded to me so far. I have no information on this. Ranbir revealed that the script work is going on at present.
However, he said that he is currently working on the biopic of legendary singer Kishore Kumar. It is going to be the next movie. Meanwhile, Ranbir has already acted in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic. On the other hand, biopics of MS Dhoni, Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar have come out in Indian cricket. The movie “Dhoni” was a sensational success. Kapil Dev’s biopic ’83’ did not get the response it expected. Sachin’s documentary is an utter flop. And let’s see how Ganguly’s biopic is going to be.
