Sourav Ganguly in a Twitter Announcement confirmed that the Biopic on his life will be made by Luv Films. And guess what? There are discussions of Ranbir Kapoor to play Ganguly’s role.
Among the hundreds of cricketers we had, we witnessed only two biopics. Films on master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and Captain Cool MS Dhoni were made a few years back and the third one, which is based on team India’s run to the World Cup trophy, got delayed due to Covid-19.
Now we are going to have one more and the film is based on the journey of former cricketer and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. “Cricket has been my life, it gave confidence and ability to walk forward with my head held high, a journey to be cherished. Thrilled that Luv Films will produce a biopic on my journey and bring it to life for the big screen,” tweeted Ganguly.
Ganguly was the man behind India’s cricket revolution in the 21st century. After taking over the captaincy, Ganguly encouraged a lot of youngsters. Harbhajan Singh, Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Dhoni made their debut in Ganguly’s captaincy.

In Ganguly’s era team India registered memorable victories and also reached the 2003 World Cup final (Though India lost). However, Ganguly lost captaincy and place in team India under dramatic circumstances in 2006. His return to team India and many more will be covered in the biopic.
Ganguly’s biopic will be made by Luv Ranjan under Luv Films banner. More details are awaited. It would be interesting to see which actor would reprise Ganguly on the silverscreen.
