Biopics seems to be the flavour of choice in Hindi cinema these days with the the likes of ‘Mary Kom’ (2014), ‘Dangal’ (2016) and ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story'(2016) performing well at the Box Office. This shows no sign of slowing down with the upcoming ’83’ and ‘Rashmi Rocket.’
Next up in potential talks is popular former cricketer, Harbhajan Singh. He recently opened up on who he thinks should play him onscreen in his biopic, reports DNA India.
In an interview, Harbhajan revealed that according to him, the star who he thinks can best play him onscreen is none other than Ranveer Singh. He also believes that Kiara Advani will be most suited to play his wife, Geeta Basra’s, role. “I think Ranveer Singh as the lead. He’ll play Harbhajan Singh. For Geeta… I think Kiara Advani,” he said.
However, Basra was quick to disagree. According to her, the best people to play them onscreen is Vicky Kaushal and Priyanka Chopra Jonas. “I think Vicky Kaushal could do Harbhajan’s role. If someone had to play me, I would say Priyanka Chopra,” she said.
Reacting to wife choice, Harbhajan said, “I would have said Priyanka as well but she hardly spends any time in India now.” Basra replied, “Kiara looks nothing like me. The actors have to be relatable. They have to look like us.”
Harbhajan married his long time girlfriend on 29th October 2015, in Jalandhar. They have a daughter, Hinaya Heer Plaha, who was born on 27th July 27 2016 in Portsmouth, Hampshire.
