The Upcoming biopic on the life of celebrated Indian cricketer Sourav Ganguly has been a trending topic since last year and while it was initially reported that Karan Johar has bagged the rights to make the film and had wanted to cast Ranbir Kapoor, Luv Ranjan is the one actually making it now.
Luv has not cast Ranbir Kapoor in it but has kept him as a probable option. His first two choices are someone else. “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.”
Luv is clear about wanting someone else that is much closer to Dada in terms of looks and appearance. In fact, Sidharth Malhotra seems like a great match. “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.”
