Bollywood has concentrated its attention towards cricket to give some great films to its fans. Cricket is considered a religion in India. Bollywood directors believe that cricket is an area from where they can make money and recognition through excellent scripts. As per reports, Karan Johar might back a film on BCCI Sourav Ganguly, getting his real-life and narrating his tale on and off the 22 yards.
Indian cinema is following the trend of making Motivational films and they feel that sports is one of the area from which they can get a fantastic story. Over the years, many directors have made films like Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, MS Dhoni – The Untold Story, Sachin – A Billion Dream, Paan Singh Tomar and Azhar. The directors received excellent response from the fans and these films rocked the box office. Fans liked this film very much on the silver screen.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the filmmaker was clicked at the BCCI office and is apparently in talks with Sourav Ganguly to make a film on his life. Also what’s making this as a solid possibility is Karan Johar and Sourav’s several meetings. In the recent times when the former cricketer had flown down to Mumbai, he reportedly met Karan Johar and the duo was heard to be looking for the male lead to step into the shoes of the former cricketer. If the film is ever made on Dada as he is fondly called by his fans, it will surely be a blockbuster.In a talk show, Ganguly had revealed that if a biopic is indeed made on his life, then he would like Hrithik Roshan to play his role as he likes him a lot.
