Who will play the role in the Sourav Ganguly biopic? The front-runners are Ayushmann Khurrana and Kartik Aaryan.
There have been numerous rumours about who will play Sourav Ganguly ever since the Sourav Ganguly biopic article was published. Ayushmann Khurrana is reportedly being considered, although the most recent news indicates Kartik Aaryan is also up for the job.
In his career, Ganguly, also referred to as “Dada,” led the Indian Cricket Team and amassed 16 hundreds. There have been plans for a time to make a movie about the amazing journey of the cricketer. The biopic is probably going to focus on a number of different facets of his life, such as his early struggles, ascent to fame, and contributions to Indian cricket.
The report cites a source as saying, “Ayushman is being considered. But so is Kartik, who is very close to the producer Luv Ranjan and also a keen Cricket fan.”
“The Director and casting will come later. The team first needs to sit with Dada (Sourav Ganguly) to discuss the basic screenplay: how much cricket and how much Dada’s life? So far, Dada has been busy with the BCCI. Only now will the actual discussions on the biopic start,” said the source.
According to certain rumours, the biopic starring Ayushmann Khurrana or Kartik Aaryan would even be directed by Vikramaditya Motwane or Aishwarya Rajnikanth. The report asserts that these are only speculative statements and that there is no reality to them. The producers haven’t even met Motwane. As for the other supposed directorial candidate (Aishwarya Rajnikanth), she doesn’t even come in the orbit of plausibility. We wonder where that came from,” said the source to the publication.
Bollywood and cricket have a long-standing love and professional relationship. The practise of telling the motivational tales of cricket players on the big screen has so far involved a lot of actors. Numerous stories, ranging from MS Dhoni to Mithali Raj, have already gained attention. The Sourav Ganguly biopic is now anticipated by fans.
