Plans to make a biopic of cricketing legend Sourav Ganguly has been on the cards for a quite some time now. Previously, BizAsiaLive.com had reported that Ranbir Kapoor was being considered for the role, but this may change as Luv Ranjan has two other actors in mind.
According to Box Office Worldwide, while Kapoor hasn’t been fully ruled out, Ranjan who will be directing the film has approached both Vicky Kaushal and Sidharth Malhotra for the biopic. A source shared, “That film is not even close to casting. But Luv has just begun talking to a few people casually about it. Two people who he feels would be perfect for the biopic are Vicky Kaushal and Sidharth Malhotra. He has briefed the idea to both the actors and awaits an approval on the same. His team is currently working on a draft of the script and sketching out which portions of Dada’s life would make it to celluloid.”
The source went on to add that Ranjan wants somebody who can essay Ganguly as authentically as possible, “Sidharth is a rightie in life but is a left-handed batsman and very good at the sport. Vicky, too, is a great player. But Luv needs someone who can play decent enough as a left arm batsman. The film will begin only next year.”
